The same dealer had £100 on a Czech pressed vase I often see on eBay for £15.00. He's good though, he always gives me some off. He hasn't cottoned on to Alsterfors yet and I got a Strom for £20.00 recently. It's ups and downs. Look at Skrdlovice, I collect it and the prices are way up there now for good bits. Why the market dictates like this is amazing. Ah well.

The only Czech glass I see here either isn't the sort worth looking at (bits of cracked, chipped Jacobean/Lord table stuff) or is the stuff by the unknown maker Frank calls "Celophane glass".

If I'd ever seen good Czech glass - I'd have beeen collecting it from that first sight!

Sue. The charity shops here are full of that same Czech pressed glass. It's the dealers here, well two or three, that have the Skrdlovice, Mstisov and lots of Chribska. I have some huge pieces of Chribska some bought for £15.00. However I did buy this piece of Monart in a charity shop .. so .. I have been getting some good ceramic finds recently, but that's for another board.

I think if you buy quality it's always an investment, it will go up and down then up again. Look at chintz which is now having a revival.

There are not enough Ysart collectors (apart from Paul Ysart weights) to sustain prices. An equivalent Lalique vase would sell in the 300 to 400 range for a 1930s piece that was probably produced in the thousands. Very few pieces of Monart would have been made in anything like that quantity with most probably being under 100 made (Colour/pattern/size). An easier comparison would be to Schneider with similar quantities and again a huge price gap simply because of the size of the market. Half a dozen very active collectors and prices will sky rocket again. But the supply of rarer examples seems to be a lot lower on eBay these days at any price.... so the steady collector base must exist too. I know of only a few collectors that are still active since the 1980s.
