Monart shape WH
« on: May 08, 2014, 09:07:13 PM »
My latest addition to my Monart collection is this ginger jar or bath salt's jar, shape WH and colour code 473.
Definitely one of my own top ten Monart pieces.
Just arrived tonight so not had time to take more photos.

Very nice purchase Gary and Mary did very well to boot. If you want to own a pair it can be negotiated  ;). Picture is on the catalogue page.
Ps Only kidding  :)

Yes, I thought it was a very nice jar as well.   It leaves a nice space in my cabinet to redisplay my favourite ginger jar!!!!

Yet another stunning piece - I did wonder if you had bought it - do you have an endless magic wallet!!  ;D

I think really it's a bit "girly" for you Gary - would look much nicer in MY cabinet  ;) ;) ;D

Can't wait to see more pictures  - look forward to you posting them,

Roberta

It's an interesting beast - but wa-aaay too pink for me! :-X
I would not describe this shape as a ginger jar though.

I would agree - I like the idea of it for bath salts though.
Apparently the Ysarts use to make powder bowls as presents for friend wives (or so I was told by a lady in Scotland who had one) so perhaps this was for bath salts.
looking forward to the pictures Gary - is the sun out up there?  8)

Thanks, I think both Mary and myself are happy with the deal.
Colour code 473 must have been a popular colour scheme for the shape WH, that's the third one I have seen in that colour scheme, your one , my one and one in the Ian Turner collection.

Absolutely glorious glass.

Cheers John, it is 19cm tall.

Cheers Roberta,but that's my " must have Monart fund" now depleted, time to start saving again.
It must be my feminine side, so it is staying in my cabinet.

I would not describe as an "interesting beast", beast would indicate no artistic merit or beauty, which this bath salt's jar has both. IMHO a believe it is a bath salt's jar.

The third image is of a candle stick holder in the same colour code and a perfume bottle in the same blue, pink and white as the bath salt's jar, beginings of a Monart trinket set. :)

 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( so sad they aren't mine.

It looks even better on these pictures, and all together with the other pieces looks amazing.

just WOW.

Is the glass still quite thick or is it finer, more delicate?

The first photo was taken in hurry on automatic setting, the second lot I had a bit more time.

The base of the jar is normal thickness, though the lid is thinner. I have three powder bowls with that type of lid and in each case the lid is thinner than the main body of the piece.
Below is a picture of the lid.
