That's because their stems are crap. I'm sure the reason they increased the price is because they've seen an increase in popularity of the vases, the large ones fit on a KM stem, and if you were looking for a quality made vase they're your only option unless you want to shell out the cash for a bohemian crystal one. So they decided to take advantage of that.
