Ysart? enamel porron
« on: November 07, 2012, 06:41:46 PM »
newbie here so have an interest in glass but dont know much about it.

Hope someone can help me with this.  I bought this at a flea market, it has two labels one in red saying Ysart Barcelona and a silver one.  I read that the Ysart family moved to Scotland about 1914.  Is this another off shoot of the same family?  Anyone has ideas on dates? Any help on the piece and would be grateful.

Hi and welcome to the gmb! :)

I suspect this is going to create a great deal of interest and discussion, not to mention a great deal of drooling and several very wet keyboards.
I can't help you myself, but I'm getting my coffee and choccie biccies and taking a ringside seat.

Before it all kicks off, could we ask you pretty please, for images of the labels, a clear image of the base (we like looking at bottoms) and how that has been finished off, and some details of the rim and handle?

(woops, cross posting - thanks for the pics of the labels - but the red one doesn't blow up)
Cheers, Sue (M)

The writing looks like their handwriting...

A couple more pics of the red label and the base.  Also there is a signature in the pattern.  Will take a pic.  Sorry just my mobile phone so isnt very good.  I would be really interested to know more.

Gordiola with a retail label - not related to the Scottish operation I think.
