    Shot of the Week Item number: 1234567890    
  
Hello, pre-pro_surfer! (Not pre-pro_surferClick here.) Watch this item (track it in My pre-pro)
  

This will be the last SOTW for a while - pre-pro is moving to a new home and your web-challenged glassmaster will be pre-occupied getting it settled in,  and then it's off to Louisville to see y'all at the show.  But it will be back, promise.

I know we focus on the high-priced glasses and this one is no exception, but it is such an outstanding glass that it deserves showcasing.  It's an exquisite glass from Paducah - the etching is strong as can be and would make any collector blush with pride to have it in their display case.  It's from M. Kahn & Co. and is unlisted and unknown.  Die-hard KY collector stilz took it after being chased around mercilessly by junkmoney (and others who shall remain nameless); the more I looked at it the easier it became to justify putting down an extra buck.  Or ten.  Ultimately it closed at $154.49.  

Was is worth it?  I leave that up to you to decide.  

I'd say DEFINITELY but then I'm a sucker for pretty glass.  Congratulations Paul (and sorry!)!!!
