Modernica has been collecting vintage glass since its beginning when it first opened as a vintage store on Beverly in 1989. The glass is collected from all over the world, predominately from Scandinavian, Italy and the United States. We have many mid-century pieces from Blenko Glass in our collection. The glass ranges from 30-years-old to 75-years-old, the criteria for collecting pieces is based solely on its quality and visual appeal, not based on brand or signature. The prices of the pieces run from $35 to $1000.
Naturally, the glass is for sale, but often it is rented out as props for commercials, television and films. Pay attention the next time you are watching a film or a commercial, you may see Modernica’s glass collection in the background.
