Help with ID for this vase please ~ Monart / Vasart ??
« on: June 27, 2009, 09:27:24 AM »
Hi guys,
Can anyone help me with an ID for this rather splendid vase please? It's just under 9" tall, weighs 2.8kg and has a polished pontil mark. I got it in a mixed auction lot and am wondering if I'm lucky enough that it's Monart or Vasart.
Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
Cheers, John.

Thanks jp ~ don't think it's the one you sold, but you never know! Came in a mixed lot with some Rosenthal glass and a vase one decorated with flying pigs (honestly!) by a Chris Ingraham ~ haven't tracked him down yet, but am working on it!!
Interesting reading on the board re "Cellophane" glass ~ thanks again. John.
