Day 385-Ruby Fade Handled-UNIQUE
One of the great people who collect water bottles has agreed to let me feature some of her water bottles on this blog. WVGlassGal is fortunate to live fairly close to the Blenko factory. Many of us are also fortunate as well because she has enabled us to add some great pieces to our collections. I am personally thankful to count her among my friends. I took the photos myself in a very short window of time when I was passing through West Virginia in late October so credit or blame are mine.
I have decided to start this phase out with a real stunning example. This one-of-a-kind treasure is a Ruby Fade water bottle with a handle, but the handle is in contrasting Cobalt. The handle is reeded and curved where every other handle that I have ever seen has been smooth and angular. The water bottle was produced in 2011 and is etched on the bottom so we know that it is authentic. Additional photos follow. Thank you Jonna, for this share and the others to come.
I am still waiting for the rest of you collectors to step up and share. I don’t care if you have 3 water bottles or 300. Please consider sharing what you have with the rest of us.
