SCOTTISH ART GLASS
VASART/ MONART/ STRATHEARN
SWIRLS AND GOLD FLECKS
In January 1965 the newly built factory of Strathearn Glass was opened in Crieff, Scotland by the Prime Minister, Sir Alec Douglas Home. It was the successor to the firm of Vasart Glass Ltd that had been run originally by Salvador Ysart and his two sons, Augustine and Vincent under the name of Ysart Brothers Glass. The catalyst for this move was the need of Teachers Whisky to have an increased production of their novelty collapsed whisky bottle ashtray. The Vasart Glass works was deemed too small to be capable of achieving the increase in production required, so Teachers Whisky took over Vasart Glass Ltd during 1964 and built the Crieff factory ready for the move and the change of company name the following year.
