Nice one Gary - I saw that and thought it would look lovely next to my "eggcup"  ;D ;) (okay, I know it's not an eggcup but that's how I think of it - might fit a duck egg!)

Strictly speaking mine is not a miniature as it is just the smallest size of shape QC at 3" high (size XI)

Wouldn't they go well together  ;D

Hi

Would it be possible to find shape PH as a miniature, I found a piece recently which looks like shape PH and is under 100mm . I will add some picture later when I get home.

Hi Roy, when you post the images could you post one of the base.
It is very possible Monart made the shape PH in miniature size, to date I have not seen one. It may be a Vasart piece as they made miniature vases very similar to the Monart PH shape or the worst case it is a fake. I have seen fake Monart miniatures similar to the PH shape.
Without seeing images of the vase it is not possible to tell who the maker is.
Gary
PS could you measure the height of the vase

Hi

4 pictures the height of the vase is between 97 and 99mm depending on what part of the rim.  There looks to be some gold aventurine as well

Thanks Roy

Thanks Gary for confirming its is Monart. I did look at Vasart shapes and as you said some are very similar.

Thanks again Roy

Below is the latest addition to my Monart miniature collection. It is a non catalogued size (3.5 inches tall ) the shape code is FB colour code 428 (green bottom and clear top with gold aventurine).
The second image is for comparison, both vases are shape FB the large one is 13 inches tall and the miniature is 3.5 inches tall.
