Day 159-Azure Howard Johnson-ReIssue
In 2006, The Blenko Collectors Society, commissioned a reissue of the Howard Johnson Water Bottle in three colors, Azure, Lavender, and Celery (all cased colors.) I can’t recall how they were sold, if Blenko sold them or if they were ordered through the Collectors Society (which is currently defunct.) Someone out there will remember. Please help me out and let me know so it will be documented. The ones made for the Collectors Society have the bottom etched “Blenko 2006 Collectors Society.” This particular bottle is etched but does not have Collectors Society on it. I do not know if it just got missed or if there were over runs that did not have Collectors Society etched on them. Technically, these are not Howard Johnson bottles as they were not made for Howard Johnson but rather they are Howard Johnson style water bottles. Having said that, I will include them anyway.
