Day 59-Colonial Williamsburg Antique Green
This is the first water bottle listed here that does not have an official name. It reminds me of the old khaki wool Army blankets so I call it khaki. It does not remind me of any of the colors Blenko made, so I don’t think it is just a variation of another color. I have seen 3 of these so far. This and one other are in my collection. Any thoughts on this color of water bottle? Below are the comparison photos that I promised to post.
Blog Update-November 28, 2013-I am now of the opinion that this water bottle was made with one of the colors that Blenko formulated for the Colonial Williamsburg Reproductions that they made from 1936 to 1966. (Blenko has gotten the contract for these reproductions back and have been making them again for about 2 years.) An example in the case upstairs at Blenko calls this color Amber Olive but the 1962 Catalog refers to is as (UGH!) Antique Green.
