I was involved with my brother collecting the stuff with a vengeance, starting about 12 years ago....
I've also learned never to say "never".
I'm certain I've seen this shape at my brother's, with this squat base.
I agree, the decor looks a bit...... odd, quirky even, certainly not typical.
But I was very surprised by some of the colours I saw in Perth Museum - have you seen the lampshade yet? The thin white, ceiling bowl-shaped one, with jagged spatters of colours around the edge?
I wouldn't have attributed that to Monart in a month of sundays!
The bit about it being a jig-saw, holding together with a wing and a prayer says MONART to me, very very loudly.
I'm prepared to be proven wrong, but my guts think it's absolutely right and I trust my guts.
I rather like it. If you don't want it, I might have a bash (whoops, bid
- bash would not do it any good!)
