Hi Bryn,

Welcome to the obsession of hand shaped glass collecting :)

You will discover that these smaller pieces of Vasart and Strathearn, yours is 1956-64, are not in short supply and they sell from 5 to 25 pounds depending on the wind and how attractive they are. Although this particular shape is less common, V012 on http://www.ysartglass.com/Vascat/VasV001.htm, it has not been found signed, nor by Strathearn yet.

The Vasart catalogues are created by collectors, hence not as many shapes as in the Monart cats, but I do still have a backlog odf submissions to add in.

Thanks Frank,
That's great, not bad for 50p then. I thought the shop owner had made a mistake, but he said "you like those marble pieces do you" and hastened to bring out some alabaster vases :lol:  
I said if he had any more of these Scottish marble pieces then please to keep them for me :twisted:
Thanks again,
Bryn (not Brian)

Sorry for the delay, been away for the last 24hrs. :oops:  

I'm a bit confused as to what to collect at the moment, last week it had to be Scottish paperweights, this week Scottish art glass, a couple of weeks ago it was irridescent glass Loetz and the like, but they all seem to find their way onto Ebay in the end. I just had £80 for my 50p Victorian Rose Bowl that I asked about a couple of weeks ago on Glass, what a huge suprise that was, it turned out to be Loetz Astglas. WoW!! :D
I have 2 very full cabinets at the moment so I am going to have to make space somewhere.
Something has to go :!: But what, I love them all, but wan't more :mrgreen: .
Cheers,
