I consider drilled holes on glass the equivalent of genital mutilation in humans, and I hate to pay too much for damaged pieces. However, the moment I saw this piece, I knew it had to have it. It was high priced; I made a hefty offer, considering the damage, and it was accepted.
So here it is, my third Glatt serpent vase and the fifth in my collection. 13" high, drilled right through the pontil, but in perfect reptile condition. Pic. 3 shows the green set, and Pic. 4 the same shape in blue martelé.
As to the hole, Dave says he can fix it!
