Hi Sue in an other thread you mentioned you would like a photo of  a Monart piece from the Perth museum Monart collection you had  seen. From your discription I think it is this vase. You are right it is a stunning piece.

That IS stunning and gorgeous Gary - but its not THE one.
MY (it's really mine, honest. I deserve it. Nobody could love it as I do.) one is bubbly and the colours are amber and blue (in a clear base) and the surface is almost lumpy (from the bubbles - they're big bubbles) - and it is MASSIVE. I'm a wumman. I like big thick cylinder chapes.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I did not see the whole collection of Monart, this is nearest one that is close to last description but not being a wumman :) I am maybe on the wrong track.

I had to arrange about 4 or 5 different visits in order to see it all - we had no say in what was produced on each visit - but it was around 18-20 bits we saw each time.

I remember both these bits well.....  ;D  It was fun being there.

(my comment was my response to my OH's time in the Riiksmuseum in Amsterdam, while he was drooling over some amazing furniture - the really curvy stuff, which bellies out at the bottom. He blushed and said, defensively: "I'm a man. I like curves.". I have since noted my fondness for cylinders.
Make of it what you like! :-\
