Is this a Strathearn paperweight?

Here's a quick pic of the set I bought:

http://tinypic.com/2d00gx

Consists of: Bottle Opener, Can opener, Double Spirit Measure (1 oz / 1 1/2 oz), Cork Screw, Bottle Stopper (cork section pulls out for single measure dispenser), Cocktail Stirrer (Twizzle Stick).]

From info I have recently received, this set may be only the fifth known to come to light amongst paperweight collecters. See Frank's pages for a pic of a 3-piece set, as shown in the book Ysartglass.

Update:
Hah! Frank got there while I was taking the pic.

That's what I love about this board - you just learn and learn!

Wow!  Really fabulous set Kev!  And I absolutely ADORE those gear shift knobs Frank...definitely on my 'must have' list!  Bet they're really rare though  :evil:

I just sat here saying 'Wow!  wow! wow!!'.  There's something about using glass in everyday situations that REALLY dings my bell baby!

Mmm-mmm!
I am not a man

They do pop-up on eBay a couple of times a year, often not identified as Vasart. It is assumed Strathearn continued for a while too.
