And a Happy New Year to everyone, just wish it wasn't so WINDY.
In my local Antique Centre, there is one cabinet which sells quite nice glass among other things, and they have a paperwight ink bottle, with a brass collar, and paperweights in the base and top. It is claimed to be Vasart, but I don't know if they made such items.
I do like it, but at £170 (I can have it for my Wedding Aniversary pressie 20 wonderful, so he says! years) I don't want to be sold a dud.
It does not look like the modern ones on eBay with the removable stoppers,but I have no idea if Vasart or Monart made anything like this. I would like to take a photo, but the owner doesn't like you doing this.
