Salvador Ysart: Signed Concentric
Reference: VAS 03849
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” ..
Rare “Y” Signature Cane (pre-1955)
Reference: VAS X095
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, ..
Rare Signed Concentric (Y Cane)
Reference: VAS X059
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 si..
Vintage Feathered Design
Reference: VAS X145
This large, unusual feathered design is attributed to Salvador Ysart.  Floating above a blue textured ground is a “feathered” arrangement of green filigree rods together with blue/orange & red/white twists laid out around a cluster of yellow/orange complex millefiori canes.Fire-polished, concave bas..
6-point Star - Salvador Ysart ??
Reference: VAS 03873
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. Sligh..
Vintage Spaced Concentric
Reference: VAS 03877
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-poli..
Concentric / 4-cane Centre
Reference: VAS 03582
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 fr..
Concentric on Lemon Ground
Reference: VAS 00781
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 can..
Concentric on Blue
Reference: VAS 00786
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 S..
3-row Concentric
Reference: VAS 01028
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-g..
Closepack with Garland
Reference: VAS 00774
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..
Concentric on Clear
Reference: VAS K197
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 oute..
