It's lovely, is it mainly yellow in the body or does it have orange in it? Pictures are only little.
Where do you get all your Monart from, there isn't any in my neck of the woods!   ;D I'm very jealous.
This is my Monart HF - have you seen one like this with just the mottled colours throughout?

Gary has special agents on"the dark side" who help him find Monart, Roberta. That is the only explanation for his incredible good luck and fortune in tracking it down.

He has a specially modified nose to sniff it out in dark corners, he has extrasensory perception which pings when he approaches somewhere that has had anything Ysart-related close to it, and invisible 7 league boots to get him to it before anybody else can.  ;D

I think it's called "total dedication". 8)

Very, very pretty thing, Gary. I LOVE the shape.
Cheers, Sue (M)

 ;D Looks even more lovely in the bigger pictures! Unusual colour - don't see many like that. And a little size too.

My base - typical Monart - see picture.

I've just bought an ashtray and a bigger bowl (cracked a bit but I don't mind that) can't wait to get them next week!

As an aside, what do you think of this

Doesn't look right to me ???
