Monart Vase?
« on: September 27, 2012, 04:23:15 PM »
Bought today for £2 in a charity shop - looks like a Monart shape SA - 5" high in mottled green with black and aventurine to rim - base is smooth polished see photo. Just posting to get  a positive ID.

Thanks Adam

Certainly Monart with the colour code being 162 and shape SA, an excellent price.

I had to fork out £3 for a pink frilly Monart plate - I was cheated!  ;)

Thanks. Glasgow seems to be good for Scottish glass. I have a good collection of Caithness built from charity shops, this is my first piece of Monart. I suppose being in Scotland helps but there is a lot of tat to be endured as well, saying that I got a large 60s Bitossi (Italian Ceramics) vase in a charity shop recently and I often get Strathearn. The boot sales are ok, I haven't yet been to Blochairn? My local dealer has four or five lovely Monart vases but wants £200 plus each for them. I love Skrdlovice and have a growing collection. Never seen that yet in the charity shops. I buy that direct from Czechoslovakia. Horses for courses I suppose.

Recently sold this on eBay for £62.00 which is a good profit. However it shows a downward trend. My local dealers want £200+ for similar, and they wonder why they are not selling.

Thanks Adam

What planet are your "local" dealers on?  ;D
The price you got for your piece was very good - it is only a 5" small bit after all.

If it were this colourway and pattern in an 8" piece, I could see it at around £150... maximum - and hopeful!

I agree, I was very happy to get that. My dealers are stuck back in the Monart boom period where it was crazy money. I remember selling small bowls for £100+ I did buy a lot of Vasart back then for my own collection and I see that's fallen. They are beautiful though and the pleasure is in looking at them so it doesn't matter. One dealer in particular has high prices and I know he paid plenty back when, so he is unhappy when I point out they may never sell. I would buy them, but I can pick them up for £10+ on eBay.

Forgot to read the small print, did he?  ;)

or does that not exist any more? it doesn't seem to apply to uber-rich shareholders in BIG business.
