    I don't think it says exactly.

    We all know that Sophia is in her 80s, and I know somewhere toward the end of the series (I think Season 5?) Dorothy celebrated her 60th birthday. We can pretty much surmise that Blanche is younger than Dorothy and Rose, by both her looking that way, her 'sex appeal' to men and the fact that she always tells us so.

    Sophia once calls Blanche a '50 year old mattress' so I guess she is somewhere around that age-mark.

    In the Mother's Day episode, 1988, Blanche tells a story about a conversation with her mother where she recalls running off to elope when she was 17. Her mother states that this was Christmas Day, 1949.
    If Blanche was 17 in 1949, she was born in 1932 and that would make her 53 when the show started in 1985.
