Scottish or Murano please?
« on: July 24, 2018, 01:23:58 PM »
Another one to add to my little collection and just wondered if it was Scottish? 
Pale blue ground with a small polished pontil mark.  2.5" diameter x 1.5" high. A little bit similar to one of my Strathearn ones, but just guessing.
TIA :)

Hi Anne,

Yes, it is Scottish. It could be early Strathearn but I think it is more likely to be Ysart Bros.

That would be nice if it was Ysart as it would be my first Ysart one.
Thank you SophieB  :-*

I agree with Sophie...Ysart Brothers (but that does not mean Paul Ysart, of course).
