A gorgeous Monart ‘Mushroom’ glass lamp and shade has far exceeded its estimate in the British & Continental Ceramics and Glass Auction on 11 October. The rare lamp was estimated at £300–500 and stood out on the viewing days in the lead up to the sale. After competitive bidding, both in the room and online, the lamp sold for a staggering £1,400 to an online bidder in North East England.
With a mottled yellow and opaque body and pink swirl inclusions, the lamp stands at 37cm high complete with glass sticker to base. The lamp was consigned to auction by a Scottish vendor, close to where the origins of Monart began.
The British & International Ceramics & Glass Auction takes place every 12 weeks. Entries are invited for the next auction, taking place in January 2019.
