Thanks Kevin, the museum has at least 4 boxes of Monart and Moncrieff archives. The archives boxed materail is no specific order as such and I have only been through two of them so far. I am going back today to photograph the full Monart glass collection and if I have time I will try and find out some more info on label used for export to Paul Jokelson.
Not sure what you mean by point 1. "or one of the two sizes of "CG Made In Scotland" ie what does CG stand for, I take it you don't mean Caithness Glass.

Hmm. Something's up with my brain recently.

I was thinking of Caithness Glass labels, as they do have "Made In Scotland" on them. But clearly that makes no sense in connection with a Monart archive invoice! ::)

As Monart ceased production in late 1961, it seems inconceivable (IMHO) that Moncrieff's would start putting labels on one of the last batch (possibly the last batch) of paperweights and inkwells exported to Paul Jokelson.
