Monart piece signed and dated
« on: August 30, 2012, 12:09:59 PM »
A superb and unique piece of Monart glass sold at Bonhams Scottish sale yesterday. The images on Bonhams (link below) enlarge really well, showing excellent detail.

Weird!
I don't like the "piping" on it at all - what do the numbers mean, do you know?

It is the date (9/3/27) either when is was made or presented, to whom  commissioned or received as a gift. It was not a normal production piece.

Doh, I couldn't make sense of 9327 with nothing inbetween... :-[
I can see it's not normal production piece.... I don't think it would have been popular. The colourway is lovely, the shape and the piping, on the other hand.....  :-X

Perhaps Jesus Brasso had a hand in it?

Nothing to do with Jesus Braso as he did not come over to Scotland until the 1930s. Salvador and J Braso have used that type or piping on other pieces J Braso on his baskets and Salvador used it on special commissioned piece (Ysart Glass page 15).

It might well be a real Monart, but certainly do not like the piping. Glad that wasn't my 695.00

it may just be myself but something isnt right about this piece (in my eyes), colourway , adventurine and them handles, even though their handled pieces werent done very good at all, alarm bells ring saying that this piece is not near as old as it makes out, but hey what do i know, theres plenty Ysart glass experts out there nowadays so will wait and see ,
