Scramble? paperweight ID help, please. ID = Paul Ysart
« on: February 07, 2015, 08:48:37 PM »
This was in a small lot of paperweights which I bought at local auction, though it was not the one I was after. It is 3 inches in diameter. It is difficult to describe because the canes almost give the appearance of having been applied to the inner surface rather than being 3-dimensional. does that make sense? Similarly with the ribbing effect - the outside is a smooth dome as with most paperweights. The ribbing effect is internal.Can anyone help ID the maker, please.
Regards
Ronnie

Hi Ronnie,

I nice weight with some really interesting complex cane bundles. It looks possibly Scottish but I'm not sure of which specific maker.

This is a Paul Ysart weight, most likely from his 1970s period.

Others show more of a "cone shape" (i.e. more pointed towards the top). Some have been seen with a PY label. Some have the ribs, some do not.

Personally I have not seen many of these and it is one of many PY designs that are missing from my collection.

Thank you both for your responses - I'm delighted to hear that I've bagged a Paul Ysart - most unexpected. I was after the Caithness "Snowdrops" Ltd Edition William Manson paperweight and this one was one of three others in the lot which I hadn't given a thought to. The other two were a C11G Mooncrystal and a basic glass sphere with a bird suspended in the middle of it - and all with change out of 40. Shows there are still finds out there - and on the same day, same auction house that a 20 to 30 lot sold for 200,000. That's life
