Frank, we've got some over here, from memory I think 3 Monarts and 2 Vasarts.  I will e-mail you directly to see if you might be interested in them.  Thank you.

I have a Monart miniature I don't need  :sun: - exactly the same as the one third from the left in Nigel's pic here, marginally under 3" tall.

Frank and Gary I appreciated your candid views on the candlestick holder with that in mind and my initial doubts, I am now convinced it is not a Monart piece.

95% sure the applied foot is black, not unlike the shade of black vitrolite glass.

Just received my latest Monart miniature, it is shape OJ colour code 162 and stands 8cm tall, the applied foot has a green tinge to it. A bit of a bargain at 20.

I have seen one other OJ miniature with the added bonus of it having a full Monart Glass label. This was 2 years ago at my local auction house, with an estimate of 50-80 and sold for 90 hammer price. Permission given to use image.
