This is a very stunning piece of vintage hand blown Scottish art glass.
It dates to around the 1950s. It is a genuine Monart piece with the catalogued shape GC and the height classified as VII.
My lovely vase has the typical "double" polished pontil, that you find on pieces of Monart glass - the raised central disk would have originally had a gold paper Monart label on it - but sadly, this is no longer present. Not signed - but Monart prices never had a signature - so that is not a worry.
There is NO etched Vasart mark and no later leaping salmon mark either - which again would back up my attribution to an earlier Monart piece.
It is certainly a beautiful example of vintage Scottish glass with such atractive colours.
The base section of the vase has a light mottled sugar pink tone - from which issues lots of slightly darker pink and lilac coloured swirls. Around the rim, there are lots of fleck of a dark purple glass - and these mix with lots of gold aventurine inclusions - they fair twinkle when they catch the light.
The vase as an elegant squat flared trumpet shape.
Excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
Nice larger size - with a height of just over 6 1/2 inches. Diameter at the top is 7 inches- and at the bottom it is just under 4 inches.
Weight unpacked is just under 1 kg.
A fair asking price for a collectable piece of Scottish Art Glass by Monart.
