Could it be early Nazeing. I had a mushroom posy with just such a button pontil mark http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=245 http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=243

Thanks for the response.
Millarart, the actual surface of the glass feels smooth but you can feel the undulations of the bubbles more so on the inside.
I have a few nazeing items to compare the vase with and none of them have that pontil button.
Not sure if it comes across in the images but there is a few black inclusions all over the vase. I am not sure if that is a trait of nazeing glass.
I thought Nigel might come out on the side of nazeing after I looked on his sight and saw a nazeing Munster vase,very similar shape.
Have just put my UV light on the vase and there is a yellowish response.
Thanks again,
Tim

It definitely did have a button pontil mark. I also had its ID and era confirmed by a lady writing a book on Nazeing

OK, no problem. It's just that I have never seen a button pontil used by Nazeing Christine - so I needed to check.

A lady writing a book on Nazeing??

Cheers, Nigel

Okay, now for my serious answer about the vase.

I believe it to be Monart. Yes the button pontil helps, but as Gary (Millarart) suggests, it should be smooth. My rule of thumb with Vasart examples is that the raised button pontil seems to have several plains - not just one.

As t'other Gary says the colour is indeed used by Monart, as is the bubble technique. Often that pinkish orange, or rust, colour was used in conjunction with moss green. The colour is also spattered, or pebbles which merge - this does happen with some (usually earlier) pieces of Vasart, but overall, I would say Monart from the images supplied.

Cheers, Nigel

That was in 2011. She was a lady in the USA. I did ask her to let me know when her book was published but I never heard any more. I know her ebay ID if you want to contact her.

Thanks Christine.

Just had another scrutiny of your linked image and realised that the button pontil is very small - so totally wrong for Monart.

Cheers, Nigel
