Yes, sizes were approximate. They were all unique, individually made pieces.
Miles and miles ahead of their time. ;D

Thanks very much Sue, really helpful.

I agree with you John, shape UC is very similar and the 91/2 inch would be about right, I guess the sizes were approx.

Many thanks,

Andy

No problem then, thanks for letting us know.
I asked a moderator to keep an eye on this, just in case.

I would be pretty confident the piece is Monart.
(But I can't answer questions about marks and labels.)

What else could it possibly be?  ;D
The only other possible contenders would be Schneider or perhaps WMF, but I think those highly unlikely. ;D

Dustbunny, safety-pin, pin, needle, kirby grips and spare batteries holder images, as requested.
Michael and i spent a good while together, trying to work out if the mark stood proud of the glass or went into it. He couldn't even find the mark at first, but we concluded it stands proud and is therefore moulded.

It's rather a battered old thing, but is still a good big solid lump of opalescent glass and its being battered means I can use it without worrying. It also meant I could afford it. :)

It is my image, the bowl is somewhere else at the moment but I took a few images before it went. None of it from the side or bottom that would of been more useful.

Thanks John, I'll have a look, there is another one for sale on a popular auction site very similar although smaller and with no foot.

I'm 99 percent sure it's monart. Was it ever etched as with Vasart or did they only use labels?

Thanks,      Andy

Shape UC looks closest, towards the bottom of the page: http://ysartglass.com/Moncat/Page04.htm

I hadn't noticed the applied foot. That makes it more Monart-y.
I have also just realised you said this is the only photo you have - is it your photo or somebody else's?

My image does make it look more top heavy than it is. There are similar shapes but not with the footed base.

Thanks for the web site I will have a look.

It does look very Monarty to me, colourwise.
It does look like an unusual shape, but not an unlikley one.
