This weight is a ten petaled red flower by Paul Ysart. The flower is set on a green stem, with three leaves coming from the stem. There is an authentic 'PY' signature cane underneath the bottom leaf next to the stem. The base is a stave basket comprised of complex canes; a pale green cross in the center, surrounded by a white cog, surrounded by a royal blue circle. There is a ring of controlled bubbles delicately placed at the inside junction of each pair of staves. The weight is 2.8" in diameter and 2.1" tall. The base is fire polished, but there is a rough pontil mark in the depressed center. The weight is in excellent condition.

This weight was probably made during Ysart's time at Moncreiff (1946 - 1964). The glass is very clear. The 'PY' signature cane was used through Ysart's career from well before 1940 through the 1960's. After 1955, when Paul Jokelsen began distributing Ysart's weights in the United States, the 'PY' cane was almost exclusively used for the American imports.

This is a truly stunning weight. Unfortunately, I had a really tough time photographing it, and I'm afraid that the images do not really capture its beauty. The front image was taken with a flash to control reflections. The two oblique views are one with flash and one without. The back, side, and signature images are all taken without flash. Hopefully, between them, they accurately convey how attractive the weight is in person.

Paul Ysart (1904 - 1992) created high quality paperweights from the 1930s until his retirement from glassworking in 1979. His father Salvador emigrated from Spain to France in 1905 to work in the glass industry there. In 1916 they moved again, to Glasgow, Scotland, and then finally ended up in Perth in 1922. By that time Paul and his brothers, Augustine, Vincent, and Antoine were all accomplished glass makers. Paul began making paperweights in the early 1930s, and was one of the few true pioneers in the modern paperweight renaissance in the 1950s.
