Day 215-Sea Green Handled
Now you only have 5 more Sea Green to go! The base color of the Sea Green can be seen in the thick spot on the bottom of this water bottle. Below is a comparison shot of the 3 handled Sea Green water bottles. One of these has already found a new home.
I tried to convince myself that the water bottle on the right was Surf Green, but either I wasn’t very convincing or I wasn’t very gullible. I now know that Surf Green is an unlikely color for handled water bottles because of their production dates. (Surf Green was 1970.) Of course, it is possible that handled water bottles were produced experimentally before the 1948 date or occasionally after 1950. Repeated requests for NEW handled water bottles to the managers at Blenko have all been turned down. My check book balance is very happy about that. (Except, we now know that two different Mini Water Bottles will be available in a day or two.)
