Monart SA vase pre or post war?
« on: December 19, 2020, 02:02:12 PM »
Hello All.
I could not resist this piece with the purples and greens the bubbles and white body.
My question is would this be pre war or post war.I struggled to find the colour on Ysart glass but it might just be my old eyes.
Keep safe all.
Thanks in advance

I have a funny feeling this is rather early.  :)
I have a little bowl in this colourway (couldn't resist it!) with no button on the bottom. The bottom is incredible. The whole piece is very, very finely blown, yet not one bubble is broken. The base is polished flat, with a round polished pontil mark, and how that was achieved on something so delicate and thin, with bubbles throughout the base, stuns me every time I see it.
Something is ringing bells at me that my brother might have said something about it being pre-war.  ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks Chopin.
I was hoping it was early.Not that it matters as it’s a beauty.
This piece also has no popped bubbles and there are hundreds all over the body.
Do you know the colour code?

No, sorry. I don't pay much attention to dates or codes. I just like looking at and studying the glass itself.
Dates and codes are just extra, extra-difficult labels to remember and the strings of numbers and letters don't seem connected to what I'm looking at in any meaningful way.
What is most important about my bowl is that it is mine;D

I've found piccies of mine.
Cheers, Sue (M)

That’s a match alright.
Might have been made at the same time.
Lovely to see.

 ;D It's a wee beauty. 8)
I'm sure the colour code is on Scotland's Glass. It is a well known one - although not that easy to find.
I was trying to catch the polished round scar in those base pics, but it didn't show itself.
It can't be more than 2mm thick at the thickest part. But it still contains beautiful bubbles, and the hollow of the scar. It was made using not exactly the best quality glass recipes, they were not available at that time, so it's even more impressive.
I do rather prefer your big vase - it's a wonderful shape.  8)
My wee bowl is a bit angular for my liking. :'(

ETA.
I've had a shifty at the catalogue but didn't find this. 392 seemed closest.

For reference, link to Ysart glass on Frank's site.

The colours should be on top.  ;D
Trust you to have something as scarce as a globe lamp in this wonderful and somewhat unusual colourway, Gary.  :P ;D
But pleased you reckon pre-war too.  :)
Do you know dates or colour codes for the gentleman who wishes to know?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thank-you, Gary. I was pretty sure you would.  :-*
I don't suppose you want to swap your lamp for my lovely little bowl?  ::)  ;D
