What was this one then?
« on: November 02, 2006, 03:09:56 PM »
This one has just finished on ebay.

I tried to get a picture from underneath and also ask why vendor thought it was italian, but response was there none.  

I thought it was Ysart - probably Salvador.  I think the purchaser also did as napoleon is a regular buyer.  

What do the experts think?

I think our German friend got a very nice bargain. It seems like something from the Ysart family. But most assuredly it is not Murano.

I had that auction on my watch list. A very pretty weight.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

I don't recognise the inner canes or the darker ones in the star arms. But the others are certainly early Ysart canes. The yellow-with-dark-centre cane can be found in both Paul's weights and some from the Ysart Brothers Glass side of the family. The multi-coloured "fence" canes [my personal description] are known in many Ysart Brothers Glass items.

The thin, mottled white ground (almost invisible until viewed under enlargement) is also known in some Ysart Brothers pieces. The setting of the outer canes is very good, but the slippage in a couple of the star arms does lessen the appeal (to me, at least).

So my guess is that it was made by Salvador during the Ysart Brothers time. [It is also feasible that it might have been made by Salvador in the 30s - or it might have been made by one of the brothers in the Ysart Bros time!]
