  1. Hard for an amateur to distinguish between mulberry, amethyst, and orchid – all of which names have been applied to similar water bottles; and impossible to distinguish the real early Blenkos (before Blenko began dating) from the knock-offs.
    Guidance from an expert would be welcomed.

    • It was hard for me too when I first started. You get better by handling more pieces of Blenko glass. Orchid is Amethyst which is covered with crystal glass. It will be lighter in color and should have a thin layer of clear visible at the bottom. Mulberry is more difficult. The best advice I have is to look at Mulberry pieces and compare the color to the other purple colors. I have purchased pieces of Blenko just because I was sure of what color they were and could then use them as a guide.
