Default Interesting Description.

This is a Syrian glass base with traditional designs. This glass stands 10 inches tall with a base diameter of 5.5 inches. The opening is 1.5 inches across. All glasses vary slightly as they are made in a crude traditional manner.
crude...makes it sound...less appealing.

just thought it was funny.

I think "crude" accurately represents the traditional nature of the workpiece. "techcnically appropriate" better describes the laptop on which I'm typing right now.

All hand-made things with minor imperfections can be described as "crude". If you think of what crude actually means, it's appropriate... although its just not a pretty sounding word. Maybe not the best choice of words! But... it fits :P

crude is far from how those are probably made, blowing glass into molds is not exactly a new technique but it is not crude by any means, ya its not to CNC quality tolerances but its rather eloquent

It's their disclaimer so they don't have to take returns all the time.

The word crude being an adjective, (in this instance) represents the manner or method of manufacturing as opposed to the vase itself. If you made a hookah vase out of a coke bottle, that would be a crude vase. If you then stuck that coke bottle up your ass, well that would just be crude.
