No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you.

Thank you for supporting the Board.

Finding the glass pieces you need for your collection involves keeping an eye on the right searches.
From Akro Agate to Vasart, whatever you collect you'll find a quick easy place to search on glass-seek.com

My royal commemoratives theme display at our Jubilee weekend historical exhibition (includes a few non-glass pieces as well.) Everything else was non-glass other than my small collection! 8)

I "celebrated" the palaver by tracking down the Sex Pistols wonderful rendition of "that" anthem.... one of the only 2 versions I find acceptable and playing it very, very loudly. 
I may get out James Mac Millan's Percussion Concerto later... nice and loud and discordant.

I'm glad to hear you were able to get some glass into the display - and a bit surprised there wasn't a lot more!
I had my brother here last week, and I tried to fob this off on him - he likes and uses Kilner jars.
He deliberately left it behind.   :-\

I was surprised too Sue, there was a lot of pottery/ceramics but no-one else seems to have glass. Mind you I thought I only had 3 or 4 pieces, and then found there was 14 in total! ;D

World's Smallest Collection of Monart?

The images below show our entire collection of Monart. I believe it is the smallest item they ever made, shape ZH, at less than 2cm high by 9 cm across.

Short of not having any specimens at all, is this the smallest possible collection of Monart?

Trevor

PS. We don't expect sympathy for our relative deprivation, because we collect mostly Australian studio glass. Contributions to expand our Monart collection, however, will not be refused.

See my blog on Australian studio glass. There is now a Facebook page with Australian glass news.

A nice little ashtray, the colour code is 162. Though not the smallest piece of Monart, I have a pin dish/bowl shape GE which is 8cm wide 1.75cm high.
