The featured item represents a hand glass art glass rose bowl by Blenko that measures approximately 6 3/4" tall, 3 1/2 in diameter at the opening and 8 1/2" at the widest points. The piece has a globular shape and comes in dark ruby color.
Rough pontil scar on the base. The shape number is 3615, probably with M at the end, for medium as I think the bowl came in small, medium and large size.
The piece is from the so-called "Pre-Designers" era, before Winslow Anderson was hired. This is clearly not from 21th century, not present in the 1960,61 and 84 catalogs. So, it was made either in the 20's or the 40's.
The item comes in overall good condition for its age with no damages but normal vintage wear like small scuffs and scratches here and there. Heavy shelf wear on the bottom and small chip or two. It's hard to capture on the pictures but there are some moderate amount of bubbles which are normal for the earlier glass.
