Roundel Pattern on Orange
Reference: YSA 01760
Spaced around a green/white/red composite centre cane are 5 millefiori circlets. 2 of them (blue & green) are composed of complex canes; the other 3 include white star canes, pink/orange cogs & mauve/white tubes with a pale-green centre. Each one is centred by a different coloured complex cane. 5 gr..
Roundel Pattern on Blue Jasper
Reference: YSA 01207
5 millefiori clusters are set around a 12-toothed complex cog cane over a pale-blue jasper ground . The white-collared canes spaced around the perimeter are filled with amber, lavender, blue and green cogs. The glass has a greyish tint. The base has a deep concavity with a rough pontil mark. Probabl..
Scrambled (PY cane!)
Reference: YSA 01026
A colourful scrambled weight containing - in addition to numerous whole and partial canes and aventurine inclusions - a roughly 1cm long, mirror-inverted PY cane. It probably got in there inadvertently, and is lying just above the opaque, mottled orange ground. The usual central air bubble with 8 fu..
Early End-of-Day
Reference: YSA 01593
The purplish tint to the glass would indicate an early weight - 1930s - and probably a trial to test a new type of ground. Whole canes, partial canes and aventurine inclusions are set on a white ground - that didn’t quite work! It has the appearance of plaster of Paris, is slightly off-white, and th..
Harland Harlequin
Reference: YSA 00215
Reds, blues, greens, pinks, yellow, amber and lavender - they are all there in this colourful assortment of partial canes and twists, set over a think blue jasper ground an punctuated by a central and 8 peripheral bubbles. Signed underneath with an H cane - Harland, 1970s. Flat, polished base...
FAKE Butterfly over Basket
Reference: YSA 03882
Hovering above a white filigree basket is a red-bodied butterfly with red/white millefiori forewings and blue/white hindwings.  The millefiori canes are good;  the filigree basket is well-made and the weight contains a PY cane. However, this is a FAKE Paul Ysart paperweight - admittedly one that is ..
FAKE Blue Fish
Reference: YSA 03883
Swimming above a translucent mottled amethyst ground is a dark-blue fish with gold aventurine fins. Encircling the fish is a continuous spoke & millefiori cane garland. Unfortunately although the weight contains a PY cane, the signature cane is a FAKE with an amber “P” and a "slipped"red “Y”.  Flat,..
Roundel Pattern (Fake PY Cane !)
Reference: YSA 01713
A well made, signed paperweight - but not made by Paul Ysart! The large complex centre cane is a Vasart cane - maybe even earlier. Perhaps the canes in the 5 clusters are from the same source, but what is missing are the 5 perimeter canes - typically seen in this design !The signature cane underneat..
