My MidCentury Blenko Lamp Find

Blenko is one of the oldest companies featuring handcrafted hand blown glass and I was lucky enough to find one of their mid century lamps at a yard sale.

As you can see by the picture, it was quite dirty and I literally walked by it three times before it caught my attention. I could barely contain myself when I read the little silver Blenko sticker attached to it. The socket and harp were covered in rust but I knew there was a real treasure beneath all that dust and rust. Imagine my surprise when the seller told me he was asking $3! Needless to say, I did not haggle on that price and left the sale with a beautiful Blenko treasure in my arms.
