Is this Monart or Strathearn?
« on: March 07, 2007, 08:51:03 PM »
I thought this was Monart but someone else says it is Strathearn. Can anyone please adjudicate and confirm its correct identity, please?
Thanks
Ronnie

Hi

Should be about 3½"high, shape QC variant as the vase spreads out more. The small version is intended as a drinking glass and went with decanters. Examples can be seen here http://www.ysartglass.com/Ysart/Wedding.htm.

I lack a good shot of this for the site can you email me a copy please, including height measurement. Thanks

Frank,

That's strange - I sent you a photograph of a set of six on 19/11/2006.  I was puzzled by the lack of reponse.  Let me know if I should resend.

Hi Ron,

Yep, still in the in-box... moved to the Monart 'to do' folder now. I still have 600+ mails in my inbox that are needing to be dealt with... just get these time shortages  ::) Still 6 months ago it was over a thousand.
