Very Rare Monot Stump French Art Glass - Brass Butterfly Holder Open Salt Cellar:
Up for sale is a Very Rare Monot Stumpf French Art Glass Open Salt Cellar in Brass Butterfly Holder.
This very rare French art glass open salt was made by Monot Stumpf of Pantin, France, circa 1876-1900. Unlike the more common opaque apricot glass color Stumpf salts, this one is a lovely transparent, light golden iridescent shade of glass with just a touch of pink on the rim and on the striation lines that run through the bowl. The shape of the salt is also the more sought-after round version with a “six lobe” scalloped rim. The crowning glory of this salt is the beautifully executed brass holder, which is decorated with four elaborately designed filigree butterflies, and allows the glass salt to sit firmly in place. A similar, more common oval version salt, in this style holder can be seen in The Open Salt Compendium (Plate 256) by Sandra Jzyk and Nina Robertson where it is noted to be very rare. The salt in the holder measures 1-3/4” high by 1-7/8” in diameter. It is in extremely excellent condition with no chips, cracks or fleabites to the glass and the holder with no bends, dents or repairs. Whether you collect Monot Stumpf or this is your first…you picked the “Cream of the Crop”!!!
