Blenko decanter/stopper question...would you?

mahatmacat1January 30, 2012

Hey folks,

I haven't posted here much recently--but I want to ask your opinion. I have a 5937 Blenko decanter, but unfortunately without the stopper. I have now found a stopper for sale that is the right *shape*, but a different color.

Should I buy it? Is no stopper better than the wrong color stopper? These things don't show up very often--this is the first one I've seen come down the pike in the three years I've had the piece.

Thanks for any and all thoughts...

I think no stopper is better than mix'n match.

I agree, I think you need the right stopper.

Thank you both. I will be patient and wait until I find the right color.

If the price is right, I'd still buy it, because you might find someone else with your color stopper but the wrong decanter. Might as well snatch it up!

Ah, idee...you had to come along and be all optimistic : ) Now I wonder...but it is kind of expensive...I might make a lower offer, then I'd feel more justified. Anyway, thanks for your post supporting the opposing view--I appreciate it!
