these pieces of 3.5 to 4 inches aren't really miniature to me a lot I would say are just  uncatalogued  small sizes,  minatures to me are around 2 to 3 inches at the most , below to me  is a true miniature at 2 inches shape A also a pic of a shape A in the biggest catalogued size of 10in though I have seen them bigger

Wow! Such a wonderful site. Thanks to this thread I have just managed to identify another of my UGOís (unidentified glass objects) from an overflowing shelf.  I thought this might be Monart related, but I have never seen anything so small, just 6cm tall...mystery solved.  ;D ;D ;D

Thank you for confirming its identity; it has now been upgraded from the precarious UGO shelf to the locked glass cabinet! Iím thinking of selling, have you any idea of its current value, I have searched but havenít been able to find anything similar?

Thanks Penny

Something like this will find its own price at auction, you really don't need to worry about that.  ;D
Monart Candlesticks are very scarce and very desirable.

Cheers, Sue (M)

Hi all,

I think I have just found another one of these little beauties, but I am a bit puzzled. It resembles a Monart Miniature in every way and stands at only 2.75" inches tall, but on the base where it is showing signs of wear the colour appears to have worn too. I always thought that the colour went all the way through the glass and not just the outside, could anyone shed any light on this please? ???

Thanks Penny

Thank you for the quick response Millarart, I can see now, just compared it to another small 4" inch Monart vase I have and the quality just isn't as good. It could be Nazeing, but from previous examples I have had of theirs the colour runs all the way though the glass and there are way more bubbles...still a bit of a mystery then? ???

Just out of interest, are the 4" inch Monart vases classed as miniatures or are they too big?

Thanks Penny
