As I sorted things out for eBay to pay a bill I found this piece again. I have had this a long time... others by the same maker were produced circa late 1990s and sold in gift shops in Scotland (at least East), later some got touted as Monart or Vasart.
but not originally as to different to fool other than a particularly inept or dishonest dealer. This one could be made at the lamp or any small studio set-up. Someones bread and butter pieces... but who?
As I cannot see this being worth the effort to list on eBay I will pass it on to anyone interested in continuing the hunt for just postage cost. Which is the same way I got it I think.
