Monart Vases but which is the best buy?
« on: October 10, 2012, 12:56:55 PM »
I like all these four pieces - photos taken permission of dealer. At 150 to 200 each I want to be careful and know they are right if I am going to buy. So posting here. All have smooth polished bases or polished button pontil as usual with Monart.

Thanks Adam

1 shape SA 9"
2 shape AE 8"
3 shape N 9"
4 shape ?

Above are only my guesses after looking on Ysart website.

Thanks Adam

Hi Adam, they are all Monart, number 4 is shape UE and is a fairly uncommon shape for Monart. Number 1 and 2 (colour scheme Wedding gift) are post war pieces. Number 3 is a pre war piece (colour code 162) and is one of the  commonest shapes and colour schemes of Monart.
You are correct with the other three shapes.
