    I've been looking at this wonderful vase all week. Today I went in to pine some more and I see a huge price drop and "as is" on the sticker. Oh nooo they didn't !! Yep, they did...... a nice little 1/8 " nick in the base. Probably hit the metal track on the showcase dragging it in out out to show people. Better than the top I guess . So now with a fifty five dollar price drop, do I want it ?? Hmm..oh wait what's that tiny red flake in the bottom of the case? It was the chip !! Well 75% of it but hey it was the biggest piece. I asked the clerk to very carefully fish it out for me. Which he gladly did and it stuck to the tip of his finger. Thankfully they hadn't cleaned the case inside or it would have been gone. I checked and yes it belonged to this vase. I carefully with minimal glue put it back in place when I got home. There are a couple tiny slivers missing but the worst is filled in. Maybe I'll practice my color matching restoration technique or just leave well enough alone for now. -Mike-

      Me too Aim..... can't believe I finally got this. The cashier even said "if it's meant to be it will still be here" every time I looked at it. I knew it wouldn't sell for seventy five dollars. It was just sad it got chipped but I could afford the twenty and finding most of the piece was a real plus ! I haven't forgotten about my purple glass posting. I'll get to it tomorrow or maybe Easter morning....lol -Mike-
