Who made this?
« on: July 23, 2013, 07:58:05 PM »
I don't know who made this, but I like it, especially the swirl centre.  Any ideas?

Thanks Ray.  I had wondered about the various Ysart possibilities, but couldn't find similar canes or examples of the spiral swirl.  The pontil mark would fit though.  I also wondered about across the pond, say New England.

Hi.

I am fairly sure those are Ysart Bros / Vasart canes. But as for which person made the paperweight...maybe Kevin H can offer a view?

I saw this also and have had the same canes in other Vasart/Ysart weights but have never seen the swirl before, I guess the price it made reflects it's rarity.

I think it is very likely an Ysart item and probably an unusual Salvador Ysart design.

As Nick says, the canes can been found in other "Vasart / Ysart" pieces. The fact that it has lots of air bubbles in the dome suggests the Ysart Brothers (Vasart) period to me. The green ground seems a bit "brighter" than I am used to for Ysart work, but maybe that is an effect of the photos?

The base finish with the central round area looks more like Monart than Vasart but there seems to be rough grinding as well, which I would normally associate with the Ysart Brothers period.

An interesting item with a central swirl that I have not seen before.
