I believe that Jean Sala was born in Barcelona (like Paul Ysart), and spent most of his working life in France. I have seen his name associated with various glass companies such as Daum and Saint-Louis, and he certainly worked as a designer for Saint-Louis in the 1930s. But what paperweights he might have made, or when, I do not know.

Jean Sala is important in historical terms, see links below:

The next link is to a word file...Asa Brandt's tribute to Sybren Valkema and has an important reference to Sala

I have never seen any of Jean Sala's work and I suspect not much exists.
