Day 380-Ruby

Blenko Water Bottle Ruby

Another nice example of Ruby which I believe was made in the late 1940’s.  Blenko stopped making Ruby in 1949 and waited a whole 35 years before making it again in 1984.  After only one year’s production, they waited another 16 years, until 2000, to add it to the catalog again.  It was made each year thereafter through 2011 but is sadly not in production for the foreseeable future.  There were too many problems with getting the color right because this formula seemed to always go into the brown shade of Ruby.

  1. I got lucky and recently acquired one of these 1984 variants. A very beautiful shade of pure Ruby red. It also has an indented bottom. I’m a happy camper!
