Great design, but I wouldnt think you would be able to use this as a real vase as there is no way to retain water. More like a show case item?

Phani: The window is clear glass. Dave Osburn had done a few of these at Blenko before he left, I remember seeing them either at the first convention or right after. There is a "Windows" pitcher on the Blenko Four website (www.blenkocollectors.com) under the designer pages for 2003 - 2006, but the vase I remember seeing was more like the one shown here.
