Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The hole in this vase was probably made so it could be turned into a lamp but by making the hole, the vase has lost a considerable value and is now purely decorative.
If you'd like this appraisal to include dimensions, please forward the height and diameter at your convenience and I'll update ASAP.
