scottish vase ?? = Cellophane
« on: July 31, 2008, 09:39:35 PM »
I bought this at an auction last Friday, it was labeled "Scottish Vase".
Can anyone go further than that or was the Auction house off the mark ?
It's 20 cm high,  and weighs a ton.

any ideas on value would be appreciated

The auction houses know this is not Monart but by labelling as Scottish they get more bids, were it Whitefriars you could bet there would be a big fuss.

This is what I coined the term "Cellophane Glass", in the 1980s, current favourite is Bohemian. Search on this board to read more...

I think they are highly collectable, although will require strong shelves if you get a lot. The reds and blues are delightful and most of the shapes are evocative of 50's style despite being somewhat earlier than that. Several Monart collectors keep examples of these. One day we will find the maker.

@ Frank, so would 1930's be about right for this one, or am off the mark?

Martin, as tinypic images tend to vanish after a while, could we save a copy of your pics into the topic for future reference please?  If it's OK with you one of the Mods will do it for you.  Thanks. :)

Nice one Martin,
i expect you found this link,
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,22153.0.html

as Frank says, one day , a maker will be found, and of course then the value will go up.
They are quality pieces, and im always looking out for more.
Value, at a guess, at the moment £30-50, but in the right auction, and with a name, who knows??
Good investment piece  ;D  (Martin, i suppose its worth what you paid at the auction)
Regards
Andy

ps. They look great with the sunshine streaming through!
pps. I think Franks name of Cellophane glass,is great, and will probably catch on ;D

thanks everyone,
funny how talking to like minded people about a vase has increased my enjoyment of it.

@Andy I paid £20, so I'm enjoying even more, hehe
