This vase was in the Debenhams sale. It was a bargain, or so I thought. It looks good, anyway. The only thing they didn't tell me was... It doesn't hold water.

Yup. One non-waterproof ceramic vase. It's not got a hole in it, as far as I can tell, it's just porous, which isn't exactly useful when it comes to keeping flowers alive and not marking tabletops.

I hadn't really thought to ask, "is it waterproof?" when I was buying it.

I guess "made in China" just doesn't mean what it used to, when it comes to vases.
