Blenko’s Classic Water Bottle design was first introduced in 1938—the same year Helen Winnemore’s was founded! It has been produced at their factory, by hand, almost non-stop since that very first year. At the time, the bottle’s design was made to fit into the narrow door shelves of the relatively new “electric icebox.” Today, that electric icebox is known as a refrigerator! The water bottle’s narrow shape with two pouring spouts and center indentation made for easy handling and fit well in those early refrigerator doors. It works just as well today, 80+ years later!
