My mother (from Dunkeld) has a Braso Basket and a signed Monart paperweight. They were given to my grandfather by the Ysarts as they used to fish on the loch beside my mums house back in the 30s.  Are they worth anything?

There's a picture of Jesus Braso beside a picture of the basket my mum's got.  She knows they are worth something but has no idea how much.

Value on Brasso basket's is fairly arbitrary, I paid 25 pounds for one on eBay but it got smashed in the post. There is no real collector interest in them but some Ysart collectors will buy them cheap out of curiosity.

How is the paperweight signed? That might have a special value.

Monart on one of the canes (at the bottom where it joins all the flowers across the base)

If it says Monart on one of the canes then this is unusual and needs more investigation.

Can you post it or send a picture to me (email button foot of message) and I will post it.

Thanks Frank

Getting a pic may be a bit tricky and take some time.  But as soon as I get one I'll post it.

cheers

All I can say is that I have been eagerly awaiting more info on the paperweight "marked Monart on one of the canes". I've never seen anything like that before!
