Vasart Tulip Lamp?

They usually do fine on eBay. To get top price you will need a top-market shop in Bond St or similar :)

Vasart Tulip Lamp?

Ah, well I don't have one of those to hand so I suspect eBay will have to do!  :lol:

It will probably go live in a couple of days. I'll pop it in the marketplace when it does.

Oh, Frank, it says on your site that you want photos of Vasart colour variations, etc... I don't know if this one is any use to you?

The photo matches very closely the actual colour (a rosey-marshmallowy pink swirled into a grey-white) - on my monitor at least.  :)

If it's no use to you, then c'est la vie!  :D

Hi Nic,

Thanks, will add it the list, the raised foot one is a good pic too. That is an important pointer for genuine lamps.

Hi

I bought a Vasart Tulip Lamp for just under £100.00 (antique shop) in October 2004 and sold for £155.00 on eBay.

Seeing that they now generally sell on eBay for around £200.00 is proof as Frank says they have and are growing scarcer.

However you can still buy for around £100.00 in many shops in Glasgow shops like 'Relics' or 'The Victorian Village'

Edinburgh is expensive but Glasgow is still good to buy retail.

There is a lot of Monart and Vasart still on the street in Glasgow. I live in the West End and most windows I pass have pieces of Monart, Vasart and Strathearn in the window. One house has a shelf right up against the window, with about 30 pieces of glass I assume to be Vasart - I really want to take a picture but am scared I will get my 'collar felt' for casing the joint LOL

The auctions are good as well -  
McTears & Co www.mctears.co.uk

Anyone with a larger pocket should head for http://www.timwright-antiques.com/ see Monart section - he has a lot more in store - I think he is the most expensive dealer selling Monart/Vasart in Glasgow - he does get large pieces with original labels and he gives good discounts
