Hi All

What do you reckon to this bottle? Vasart?

Yes, Vasart (until such time as we get any good info that Salvador Ysart made bottles in that style pre-war). I have already given the seller the basic info about that one (which I believe is a relist from a prior listing a whle ago) and the one that they sold very recently. I said they were not by Paul Ysart.

I have also suggested that, for info on Ysart-looking items they might consider dropping in to the GMB as well as looking at my web page on bottles of that style to check out features that indicate Ysart work and that of later, as yet unknown maker, items.

This is the 4th time this bottle has been advertised for sale on Ebay.   The seller has reduced the price, but with the flee bites out of the stopper, the price still seems a bit on the high side.   I collect "Ysart" ink bottles and I put in an offer the first time it appeared which was rejected.   

Like you Kev I bought the other perfect ink bottle recently on Ebay (same price as you paid for yours) - it does seem as though the price for these items has fallen through the floorboards.   Who would have thought you'd get one of these bottles for £235.00 - it wasn't so long ago you'd have had to paid £400 upwards!!!!!

Regards
Mary
