British & Irish Glass / Re: Monart or not ?
« Last post by Gary on Yesterday at 08:26:16 PM »
For those who may not know (and assuming I have got it right), Paul Hollister (Jr.) is well known in paperweight circles for his 1969 book "The Encylcopedia of Glass Paperweights".

But more importantly, he was a leading light (at least, in the USA) in the field of studio glass, having written many articles from the 70s thru 90s. See: http://www.bgc.bard.edu/news/events/-91.html
Your assumption are right it is one and the same person, though I did misspell his name.
For those people who don't know who Betty Reid was. Betty worked all her working life at Moncrieff glassworks and single handed saved so much Monart archive materail from getting put in the skip when Monart finished production in 1961, which is now in Perth museum.


so nigel was correct then regarding concave pontils , also there are examples of monart with the four marked pontil, I have one somewhere and I know keith has some also , or is this a different thing their on about
I believe though not certain, that the four  marked pontil was used on the applied foot of Monart pieces.
My goodness, thanks very much for sharing those letters with us Gary  :) How very gratifying, my feelings have been chuffed  ;) :)

Cheers, Nigel
Glad to be of some assistance.

Ah yes, it's the amber one. I was looking so closely at the top of the rim, I completely overlooked it slightly down  ::) I'll take my sunglasses off... 8)
