Perth Museum Monart reserve collection
« on: November 12, 2013, 07:18:35 PM »
In the last few years I have had access to the Monart reserve collection a number of times, in which I have been able to photograph the whole collection (excluding paperweights and some fairly ordinary Monart pieces).
As not everyone can get to Perth museum to view the collection, I have uploaded images and put them on Glass Gallery.
Below is a link showing the majority of the collection.

The images below are my favourite three pieces from the collection.
