Hopefully, Blenko will produce more of these even though Orchid is not in the catalog.
This is an example of the “new” Orchid. Orchid is not a catalog color for 2012 but it is in the catalog for 2013/2014. This is the new Amethyst color that Blenko is making for 2013 and it is cased in Crystal so it is technically Orchid.
Violet has been retired (again) and replaced in 2013 with a reformulated Amethyst, so here is one last look at Violet.
I think that this is probably the shade of Peacock that went to the PBS donors. It is not too light and not too dark.
Okay, here is another Topaz water bottle that I have purchased (and probably didn’t need to.) I have spoken privately with many of you and I have unsolicited confessions from you that you are also addicted to certain colors. Words like, “I have a hard time not bidding on …………. or I am a sucker for the color …………., but as I have mentioned before, I am really not that big of a fan of Topaz but lately I can’t seem to not buy the light colored ones. (Maybe, I am bidding and no one else is???) I just need to repeat the mantra, “Topaz is the new Sea Green.” Also the label looks new and is in the wrong place.
This is from the early days of Amethyst, 1942 through 1957. Even if you don’t especially like purple you have to admit this is a great looking water bottle.
This is an older example of Ice Blue from 1951, 1952 or 1953. Blenko now makes a reformulated Ice Blue which is Turquoise encased in Crystal.
