There is definitely some in Glasgow Museum, in the same cabinet as the Clutha glass, and I'm sure there was a bit in the Ulster Museum in Belfast. (My trip there was very hurried and crammed in mid-journey).
I don't know if they have any in the MacManus Galleries in Dundee; they hide all their glass away. It's the same in Edinburgh, Chamber Street - all locked away, put of sight.
Cheers, Sue (M)

 ;D You have the luck of the devil, Gary. I know you've got first dibs on all the best Monart lurking in the shadows, but how come you get Fritz Akerboom too? ;)  :P

I shall take solace and comfort from the knowledge that I met Fritz Akerboom once, in a very small gathering of the Scottish Glass Society, at a talk given by Jack Searle.

well done you, I seen in an earlier reply on here that his grandson was on and going to be visiting Frits and gathering some info and maybe photos of any glass he had etc but it doesn't look like he ever got back on here again strange would have been great if he had

It would have been wonderful, but a lot of time has passed.  Age is catching up with a lot of us these days. ::)
