Hi Gary I have had trouble getting a good represention of the colour on my Monart pieces with colour code 42B.
It was actually a picture of the base with pontil mark that I would like an image of.

Try a soak in lukewarm bioviolent washing liquid and after that, swirling some dry rice in it to remove the loosened gunk.
It's a far safer first bet than trying anything of a mechanical nature!

It's a very elegant shape - I'm afraid though that  (IMNSHO  ;D ) this colour combination, when not related to something from the '60s onwards, is just... eeeeeeeeek!

Perhaps "stunning" would be a more diplomatic word to use - but I would be meaning "eeeeeeeeek" so it would be dishonest.

It's an absolute treasure of a find. Well done!
Cheers, Sue (M)
