  • This 4-row concentric - set on an opaque pale-green ground with splashes of yellow - is one of the few signed paperweights from Salvador Ysart !  The canes, which all have a central coloured tube or rod, are lined in russet, grey & green and sheathed in pale-orange, green & ivory. Signed with a “Y” cane in the first row (at 7 o'clock in the first...

  • A fine vintage concentric and one of the few signed paperweights from Salvador Ysart !  The “Y” signature cane is in the first row (at 5 o'clock in the first picture). 4 rows of well set up internal daisy canes with a central rod or small complex cane. The white canes are lined in red, pale-orange, blue and reddish-brown, while the outer...

  • Salvador Ysart - the founder of the Ysart/Vasart paperweight-making dynasty - signed very few paperweights. This low-domed, 4-row concentric, around a white, red and yellow centre cane - which is slightly distorted due to an air bubble partly underneath it - is set on an opaque aqua ground. The Y signature cane is in the outer row. The purple tint to the...

  • A well-made inkwell - probably the work of Salvador Ysart - with a soft bluish-grey swirl, which continues into the neck. 3 concentric rows of complex millefiori canes are set around a centre cane over the semi-translucent blue-grey base. The canes in the outer row are separated by lengths of twisted pink/white/green ribbons. The canes in the outer 2 rows...

  • A well-executed star design - probably the work of Salvador Ysart - on a striped ground. Neatly-set millefiori canes, which could well be attributed to Paul Ysart, but the striped ground is a feature more usually associated with Salvador rather than with his son. The glass has a purplish tint. Slightly concave, fire-polished base with a roughly-ground...

  • A spaced concentric design attributed to Salvador Ysart - the striped ground is a feature often associated with his work. 7 different types of colourful, complex millefiori canes are arranged on an unusual reddish-orange “globular”ground with pale-yellowish stripes running through it.Flat, fire-polished base with slightly-concave unfinished pontil mark....

  • A well set-up spaced concentric design with no slippage attributed to Salvador Ysart. The 4-cane centre - here white daisy canes in lemon collars - is a feature often associated with Salavador’s work. Set on an opaque teal colour ground the 3 rings of complex millefiori canes - in colours ranging from brown, green, orange & yellow to pistachio, pink...

  • This weight has all the hallmarks of having been made by Salvador Ysart, possibly in the late 1940s judging by the grey tint to the glass. 3 concentric rings on mottled lemon surround a well-centred cluster of 5 mustard-yellow composite canes. The other canes include pale-lavender internal daisy canes with pink & white corrugated rods;...

  • A large, 4-row close concentric that is almost identical to the few known weights that Salvador Ysart signed... and equally as well made, with no slippage. Canes in shades of pale-blue, sea-green, pale-orange, reddish-brown and ivory encircle a 4-cane centre - another feature often associated with Salavador Ysart’s work. Set on a translucent,...

  • A well set concentric - possibly the work of Salvador Ysart - with a 3-cane cluster in the centre framed by a row of composite canes, each composed of 17 individual blue, green & white elements bundled together. The canes are enhanced by the opaque sea-green ground. The glass has a distinct bluish-green tint. The base is concave with the pontil mark...

  • Numerous complex millefiori canes - some of which could have come from either Salvador or Paul Ysart (for instance, the branch with 3 cherries - at 9 o’clock in the main image) - closely-packed on an opaque, sea-green ground. Glass compatibility unfortunately caused annealing cracks - 2 in the canes (both ca. 2cm long) and one in the cushion and base....

  • Although not signed, weights of this style and quality can generally be attributed to Salvador Ysart. The canes in this precisely set-up 4-row concentric - including the centre cane, the white composite cane with orange centre and the white & pale-blue internal star cane with central rod in the outer row - match canes found in signed weights (of...
