monart vase?
« on: March 17, 2011, 10:43:46 AM »
hello glass people.
ive recently purchased this online as a piece of art glass.
i thought it was monart and still do im sure its a rare shape EF with blue green colour and bubbles.
i would really appreciate any opinions....its 9"h and has an applied base that has a polished pontil and polished out foot ring.thick and heavy.lovely if it isnt monart id love to know who it is.
cheers.
happy hunting.

Hi and welcome  :hi:   
A clear image of the base and the pontil mark would help a lot, but it looks right to me - and it's not a ginger jar without a lid!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Could you please expand on that. What is meant by "Ysart stopper"? What makes the bottle "early"? Is the bottle decorated with just colours or are there millefiori canes?

Shape GF

The correct shape is EF and colour code is 410. Shape GF does not have an applied foot.

Hi Gary
Didn't want to argue with frank about the shape even if I thought I was right in the 1st instance I would think he's forgotten more about monart than I know and I think I know a bit.one reason I never post any replies about monart is because my knowledge just doesn't compare to his and yours.thanks for confirmation though.just a note i put rare in my post as there isn't or wasn't a colour pic of the shape on the ysart site.happy hunting.....

A nice shape but not all that rare, I have images of seven EF shapes all with different colourways.
