Day 100-Kiwi Diamond Optic Large

Blenko Water Bottle Kiwi Diamond Optic Large

This is another diamond optic water bottle with the large diamond pattern on it.  All of these that I have seen were etched with “Blenko 2010” on the bottom.  This leads me to believe that by 2011 the glass blowers had the diamond optic perfected (or the small Diamond Optic pattern was chosen as the standard.)  If you like the large diamonds, get them while you can.  They will be rare.

Blog Update-November 28, 2013-Initially there were two different molds used to create a diamond optic pattern.  Blenko decided sometime in 2011 to eliminate the large diamond optic variety.

  1. I have several of these including Kiwi, although mine is a little lighter. Yours is gorgeous!!! I wish Blenko made more, but I am very happy with what I have. To think that these are so limited and rare makes it even better, but I collect them mostly for their beauty.
