I think this probably dates from the 1930's unless it was produced over a long period of time  . It's 10 inches in diameter at it's widest point and has a pitted outer surface . I assume it's Monart , not the most interesting of pieces but I was very happy to find it . Shape X .

Glass / Re: Need help identifying these vases with signature
« Last post by Anne on Yesterday at 06:36:42 PM »
As Troy says "pieces", I assumed separate pieces Sue. 

Welcome to the board, Troy. The pic of the signature is too small to make out the detail - can you highlight the marks with something, e.g. talc or charcoal to highlight the letters better please? (It will wash off again afterwards.)

Your photos need to be around 700 pixels on the longest length and can be up to 125kb each so you have space to play with making them the right size for what we need to be able to help you.   Also a more descriptive subject line would be helpful for your future posts - see here for why: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,17458.0.html

New Zealand & Australia Glass / Re: Peter Reynolds vase
« Last post by brewster on Yesterday at 02:06:08 PM »
I had an interesting chat this evening with the glassblower Peter Reynolds on the subject of his pontil stamps. The intriguing design in the stamp on Anne's vase, shown in Reply #2 and #5 is simply a carved pattern in the graphite rod used as a stamp. It has no meaning. He said the stamp was used for a few weeks only in 2007.

The unusual reversed J in the other stamp Ross shows is an attempt to make a monogram incorporating the initials of Peter Reynolds and his assistant Jade Riggins. I'm not sure it was so successful!

He has given up the use of stamps and returned to signing.

A red one sold on that well-known auction site recently, a reasonable ball-park figure for you. I like your colours better.  :)

Hi John & Sue,
thank you for your reply and the good news.The shape does look like a ginger jar shape but bigger.
There are no annealing cracks and it does ring true.All good.
One other info that i would like to know now i am sure it is real is the date of manufacture for these,i do know when Monart were in production.
Also i know we don`t talk about prices but can anyone point me where to look for past prices.
Thanks again,Paul.

No, that is not a fake, that is a really lovely bit of Monart Cloisonne.
A very unusual piece.
Just a small word of warning. Monart is known for developing annealling cracks, have a very careful look all over in different lights, check the bottom, try tapping it to see if it rings or thunks.
But even if it does, it is still sellable, just not for so much. I hope it doesn't have any cracks! :)
