Monart or Vasart lightshade ?
« on: August 03, 2013, 10:56:52 PM »
Seen this on ebay and IMHO it is Vasart rather than Monart, I have emailed the vendor with my concerns about maker. The vendor sells Monart and Vasart regularly on ebay and his attributions of maker are normally correct. This has been re listed,with a the original opening bid of 400, it did not receive any bids.
Do any other members have any thoughts on the piece.

I received a reply from vendor which he said he would let any bidder on the piece know my views on the shade.

It is a cracking piece Gary, I would have considered bidding on it, if I did not have 3 similar Monart lampshades. Lack of rooms to hanging an other shade.

but a good piece to add to your others so you can change them over every now and then
