repaired vasart/ysart bros inkwell
« on: June 02, 2009, 08:38:31 PM »
really attractive coloration - shame it seems the neck was damaged at some point and had a sympathetic repair with a brass fitting.

the seller seemed a little doubtful at first - you're views would be appreciated!!!

I have sent the following to the seller:

For information, please note that there was no such company as "Ysart glassworks of Spain".

Bottles like this are usually thought to be from the early Vasart period, 1946 to a few years before 1956, most likely made by Salvador Ysart.

I examined this item when it was with a previous owner who had it logged as "Monart". Even so, there is no actual proof of these style inkwells (rather than perfume or secnt bottles) being pre-war Monart.

Also, a brass collar, neck, or lid has been seen on several of these items as a repair. The brass repairs are not very old. The previous owner had this item correctly logged as "repaired".

For details about the Ysart family see the book "Ysart Glass" or refer to Frank Andrews' web pages on "Scottish Glass". For examples of bottles of this type please see my web article:
