New discovery: Monart uranium glass

<< < (5/10) > >>

Gary:
Frank the ginger jar in the Ysart Glass book (page 71 plate 49), looks like the same decoration style (coloured whorls and clear) and colour scheme as the RI uranium tray with the colour 248. Is that ginger jar the same one from the I Turner collection sold at Christies in 2003.
Gary

Frank:
I don't think so, probably went to Parkington or Perth Museum... grey cells to foggy  ???

Gary:
Not in Perth museum, I have viewed the Monart glass collection twice and photographed every piece apart from what is on display and a couple of AF bowls and some Y pin dishes (fairly ordinary pieces).
Gary

Frank:
Maybe Ian bought it in the Parkington sale.

Gary:
Below are two images of my latest purchase, it is Monart, shape code IG size code 1V (12 inches wide) colour code unknown,citrine with orange and yellow splashes with bubble inclusions.
When I purchased the piece the vendor mentioned he thought it possibly was uranium glass.
I borrowed a UV light today and it is indeed uranium glass.
