Is this really by Paul Ysart

I suppose the description of this paperweight could be correct...but I have my doubts.

The seller needs to put Kev or someone in touch with the original vendor. The story is so skewed that there is possibly some truth there and maybe something new will be discovered whether it is by Paul or not. But it ain't a paperweight... it is a peever  :o

Since running Ysart Glass, I have had quite a few contacts by people who were in some way connected to one or another of the Ysart's and a few special pieces have come to light as a result.

I have asked the seller for addtional photos and also asked a couple of other questions. I will also ask about other info or possible contact with the lady owner.
