Blenko 2

Whether your taste is modern or classic, you find something to covet in the collection by the Blenko Glass Company.

The company: The West Virginia-based Blenko Glass Company, originally called the Eureka Glass Company, has been in the glass-making business since 1893. The company, located in Milton, has been run by a member of the Blenko family since 1921.

The main goods: Tableware items, including glass bowls in various sizes and shapes (think clamshell, scalloped and leaf); pitchers, decanters, vases and drinking glasses – ail in a host of colors.

Most popular: The 384 water bottle ($53), which has been in production since 1938. Available in a variety of colors from clear to cobalt blue, the iconic, eight-inch-tall bottle holds 36 fluid ounces. In 2013, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its carafe-style bottle, Blenko introduced a mini version of the water bottle ($46). The mini bottle is six inches tall and perfect for a bedside table – for water or flowers.

Where to buy: www.blenko.com. In the Atlanta area, find the water bottles at Steve McKenzie’s, 999 Brady Ave. (stevemckenzies.com); and Urban Cottage, 998 N. Highland Ave. (urbancottageatlanta.com).
