Yes, that's right. More. Just not quite as much as we had initially anticipated. We thought at first that our consignor was going to bring 100-200 pieces, and we had no idea where we were going to put all of it, much less have time to price it and get it on the website, so it was actually a relief to get a fraction of that.
Trust me, though, what this batch of Blenko lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in size. We're talking a 43-inch floor vase, people. That's as tall as an average seven-year-old child...or the average stand-alone washing machine...or George the Great Dane, Guinness record holder for Tallest Dog Ever. (I know this because I googled 43 inches is the average size of what?) Not all the pieces are that tall, but they are impressively large.

We have 3 of these!
Update (4/21/12): Would you believe that the largest floor decanter is actually 46" tall, instead of 43"? I was at home when I wrote this post, and the decanter was at the store, so I looked up the measurement on another website. When I looked it up today in the original Blenko catalog, I found out that all my research about things 43" tall was for naught. So what is 46" tall...besides this ginormous piece of glass?
