Blenko 384H

We’ve been bad about blogging.  BAD.  We’ve found some great stuff, but it’s been so hard to juggle the shop, the bairn, and our lives.  Blogging just seems to slip through the cracks as of late.  We keep meaning to blog about our visit to a little tiny thrift outside of our usual haunts and the strange little Blenko water bottle we found there.  We almost didn’t bring it home with us, but it was different enough that we decided it made the cut!

Thanks to the amazing blogger behind A Year of Blenko Water Bottles, we were able to get a little more information about our find.  As it turned out, Blenko only produced their #384H Water Bottle for just a few years.  Not many of these bottles come down to us today because they’re incredibly fragile.  What’s more the water bottle we found was in “Marine Crystal,” a greenish-clear color that was only produced for a few years!

We ended up selling this piece on ebay since we had no clue how to price this piece.  We’re very glad we decided to pick up this piece of design history and we hope that it enjoys its new home!

    That bottle is awesome! I see the regular water bottles all the time, but have never seen one with a handle like that. Great find!
