Chessie The Railroad Kitten Since 1933 Cobalt Suncatcher

The Blenko Glass Company that commemorated Chessie’s deep history with the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway. 

Created in partnership with the Blenko Glass Company of Milton, West Virginia, the custom design again features the C&O Railway’s famous mascot Chessie.  For this piece, Blenko Glass Company's Cobalt Blue was selected in honor of C&O’s enchantment blue.  Beautifully represented by the world-famous glassmaker, the suncatcher's representation of Chessie comes from the C&O Historical Society’s vast archives of C&O Railway advertisements.

Surrounding the archival art of the Chessie reads, “Chessie the Railroad Kitten Since 1933” in a historically-accurate typeface that was used by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway.

Blenko has manufactured these beautiful pieces that can not only be used as a suncatcher, but also as a tree ornament or even as a paperweight

Blenko’s unique ability to combine their vast manufacturing experience with modern, digital-age techniques has made it possible to create these history-themed pieces with tremendous quality and accuracy.
