I suspect it must date from the early 1900's, as the Moncrieff telephone number was 711 which would mean that Perth only had a maximum of 999 subscribers to the telephone exchange. This is only my assumption as my knowledge of telephone history is next to nothing. I am hoping some member with more knowledge on the subject can shed some light on it.

Not relevant at all but I thought you might like to see a description of 30 Curzon Street which is a listed building :)
that's a pretty magnificent address to have as your London office - the glass must have looked amazing if it was displayed there.

A bit more info on date of Moncrieff's office in London, the two images below are from the Monart archives in Perth Museum. The important bit is the badge on the heading " NATIONAL SCHEME FOR DISABLED MEN". This scheme was introduced in 1917. This would indicate that the Moncrieff office in London was pre 1917 as the headed note paper with the London address does not have that emblem. Also the later headed note paper is minus the London address.
Thanks for the links flying free, pretty swanky building in an up market area of London.

The provenance of these price lists, according to Perth museum is that there were donated by Betty Reid family after her death. Below are images of price lists from the same source (Perth Museum archives), there is more price lists among the archives.

Intriguing, so probably just for internal use. Now who sold Monart in Northern Ireland!

I like the 1949 amended list with all the changes...and the difference in retail v Trade price...interesting in that the retailer wasn't getting 100% profit. 
Thanks for sharing these - I find them fascinating.
