Mr. Cohen, I'm absolutely sure, would have appreciated and understood your feelings.
Untangling the strange mixtures of feelings we can get was what he did, with brutal honesty, wit and compassion. :)

But real images later would be wonderful.

To my dismay, I have only just realised our conversation had moved onto another page...senility creeps on! So, my apologies for not responding to your comments of September Sue.
My early days with Leonard Cohen were magical (thank you Katie!), and I became totally absorbed with his words throughout my life. You're right, there was a perception he was the 'disciple of doom' and many thought me a little strange to be so enthralled: fortunately I had enough stoical indifference to realise I knew something they didn't!  :)
You're equally right with regards to his subsequent popularity. When he went on tour to recover his finances (stolen from him), I thought I would be one of a small group of 'weirdos' huddled in front of the stage...but the O2 Arena was packed and touts were trying to sell tickets for ridiculous prices. Strangely I was both elated and saddened: I was so pleased he had, at last, been recognised but also a little jealous that I had to share something rather personal. How adolescent!!
Take care.

it looks like it has been decorated with an interpretation of willow pattern (if you don't know this already) which might make searching easier

Hi Jean,

With my moderator hat on, I have had remove the image you posted as Board rules for Use of Copyright Images prohibits 3rd party images to be posted without stated permission of the image owner.

But people will still have a few months to check out the images on the completed auction listing.

As for who made it, I have no idea but I do not think it was any of the Ysart men, at any time in their careers. The canes certainly do not look like Ysart work.

I bought this vase  ? L shape-Monart -from on Ebay Auction . from The Hospice of St Francis.
Tall Vintage Round Colourful Millefiori Vintage Signed Stretched Glass Vase
eBay item number:

Sadly it has mysteriously 'disappeared ' in transit via DPD to me and I have got  nowhere in  tracking its where abouts .presumed stolen .during transit 22nd January 2019 The electronic signature of receipient  was not mine and I cannot get a positive address from seller via DPD

I felt  that it may be an early Monart by ?? one of the Ysart Brothers and the signature looked like !! Augustine.??? Welcome any opinion.

Can't post pictures from books due to copyright but the book, "20th Century British Glass' by Charles Hajdamach is worth getting if you collect British glass, it's on page15. Your vase is very much like it, the colour and style match, I have a clear jug that may also be be the same cutter. Forgot to say welcome  ;D ;D
