Is this a Ysart weight?
« on: June 22, 2012, 03:12:35 AM »
Was going to try and get this one but work got in the way.  :( It appears to have Ysart canes and rough pontil and is well set but is it Ysart? Maybe someone on the board picked it up?

Very likely from the Ysart Brothers (Vasart) period.

The setting is cripser and cleaner than many but the outer canes appear to have been "squashed" at their outer edges.

The canes are similar in look to ones in my weights shown here:

Interesting to see that these are now fetching over 100, even with bruising!
