I've decided to sell my beloved vase. I purchased the vase in 1981 at the Van Briggle Studio in Colorado Springs. I can vividly remember the selection process. None of the available vases met my stringent expectations.All the vasesseemed to have something wrong with them. Finally, Isettled on a display unit that was located in a glass counter. Perfect coloring and perfect condition. I plan to retire soon, and need to lighten the load.
