One of a collection of Monart and Vasart glass from Perth - a bowl of mottled green and gold flecked glass, marked Vasart in script on the base

In 1946, Salvador, Vincent and Augustine Ysart left John Moncrieff's glassworks in Perth to start their own glassworks. The name Vasart was derived from 'Vas', their initials, and 'art' from Ysart. In 1956, the name was changed to Vasart Glass Ltd and in 1964 Wm Teachers & Sons became the major shareholders and moved the glassworks to Crieff under the name Strathearn Glass Ltd.
