I believe( IMHO) these two vase are part of the original twelve miniatures mentioned earlier in this thread. I have emailed the auction house for extra photos of the base and labels.

The auction house have posted a photo of the labels http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/wellers-auctioneers/catalogue-id-2863691/lot-15364070 . Which IMHO confirms them to be fakes.

Just finished listening to auction live on the net and they sold for 75 hammer price. It was interesting that the auctioneer only described them (during auction) as "miniature vases" and not Monart miniature vases as described in their catalogue.

It was interesting I received a reply from the auction house re- condition report and extra images after the auction had started. Below is an image (permission given) of the base of the two vases with (IMHO) fake labels.

One of which has had lots of rub testing to see if ink comes off  ;D
