Designed for Blenko by Joel Myers in 1967 and commonly called the "Air Twist Decanter" after the beautiful paperweight-like stopper. Shown here in smoky grey and measuring 16" high and around 12" wide. It is my understanding that this is among the most collectable of the Blenkos.

Bavarian porcelain from the venerable German factory Hutschenreuther Selb. Our 14" tall oval shaped vase is an obvious homage to the iconic black & white works of Fornasetti...right down to the hand painted gold details. This surreal piece is from a line called "Pompeji" and was designed by Fabius von Gugel in 1964.
