2 Paul Ysart Paperweights for Sale
« on: September 13, 2011, 03:45:54 PM »
Hi there.

I was kindly left 2 Paul Ysart paperweights by my grandmother when she passed away 12 years ago.  I would like to sell them both and was looking for some advice on how much to expect before I put them on ebay.

They come in their original boxes and have the PY cane:)

Look forward to hearing from you

The flower weight looks like the one you sold on eBay in February this year and for which you posted a GMB Market Place thread. Is there another weight you are looking to sell, besides that one and the Butterfly?

Sale price expectations are hard to comment on. The winning bid (£180) on the Flower weight with a few bubbles in February seemed quite reasonable. I would think the Butterfly could make a bit more, but on the day it will depend on the bidders - although you can control that to some extent by setting a reserve or minimum opening bid.
