Ysart, Paul

Paul Ysart (1904 -1991) was born in Spain. The family emigrated and eventually settled in Scotland in 1915. In 1921 Paul began an apprenticeship at the Moncrieff glassworks. During the 1930s he was already making quality paperweights, as we know from Evangeline Bergstrom’s book “Old Glass Paperweights” printed in 1940. Two of his weights were illustrated and - due to their quality - Mrs. Bergstrom assumed they must be French, although she was puzzled by the PY signature. From 1962 to 1972 Paul worked as a training officer at Caithness Glass before setting up his own companies Harland and Highland Paperweights. Paul Ysart continued to produce beautiful - and today very sought after - paperweights up to the end of the 1970s.
