    I spotted this fella amongst a ton of cool stuff on some pictures of an estate sale. Austro had just posted his gorgeous collection and I thought I knew what it was...pant pant pant...
    I emailed Austro, who rocks (!), he thought it was what we thought it was.
    Unfortunately I have a job and am not always at leisure to go where I want when I want...(which stinks)
    Plus it was over an hour away.
    Oh, add really crappy weather...just to make traffic fabulous.

    Long story short, I finally get there, I was SHOCKED that it was still there.
    Wow, there was a very healthy price on it too.

    When I finally handled it, I decided it was probably a student repro piece. I told the head of the sale as much, she agreed and really really lowered the price for me.
    Not my usual 5 dollar limit...tens time that.

    So, glass gang, is it??

      I have to say I would have never know about this diamond without the CW community. It is always a learning process and it is terrific to have this community to learn a grow with...
      I'd also like to thank the Academy, my manager, publicist...:))

      Ok .....so now I'm jealous of you Amber....still hunting for this elusive type of glass. Guess I'm hunting in the wrong spots,but I really do hate estate sales. As you say they can be budget breakers. So why torture myself just by looking....lol.
    12. DrFluffy DrFluffy, 7 years ago
      So beautiful.... Congrats on your quest.... I LOVE IT...
    13. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Mike, I rarely go to estates either, way too pricey for cheapy me.
      Thank you all for riding that high with me, telling me I didn't buy a fake, and the general love!
    14. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 7 years ago
      Amber, this is to die for!!! I am next to scout one out..once I rob a bank :)= Congrats!! XO
    15. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Moon, I had planned to spend much more on it. I truly believed it was a repro...
    16. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 7 years ago
      Amber, you deserve this incredible vase!!! This is my dream vase and if you can find one so can I! This is one of the best shares on CW!!! XOXO
    17. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Well I don't know if I'd go that far...I only heard about these from Austro's posts.
      Keep an eye open on those estate sales.
    18. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 7 years ago
      Amber, out here in California...we don't have estate sales like you do back out east! I miss those...when I lived in Virginia, near DC!

      Beautiful, amber. Congratulations!

      Well done AmberRose..lovely vase...-)
    21. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Moon, I just looked up estate sales in your area, they look exactly like the ones around here.
      Thank you everyone!
    22. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 7 years ago
      I am so happy you got it and i was of some help on it!!! :)
      It's a great vase!!!
    23. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Austro you really did help a lot, thank you again. We can email when you get back.

      JayHow, first it was super dim lighting, then it was still there and I knew like eight dealers personally that were there (plus others) and finally it was much heavier than I thought it should be.
    24. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      You are swee JayHow! Actually the story of the capture is my favorite part too. Guess that's why I detail it so much. I have no problem getting teased, if you didn't, I'd be worried you were mad at me :))
