The Vasart glass factory, originally named Ysart Bros, was founded in 1947 by three brothers, Vincent Ysart, Augustine Ysart, and Salvador Ysart. Their range of glassware was named Vasart glass, the VAS part being created from the brothers initials of their forenames. One common Vasart colour scheme used a lighter shade at the bottom of the piece with a darker one towards the top. At the point where the two joined, swirls were added in one or more contrasting colours. On the best examples of this type, the swirls are regularly worked and very distinctive. In the early years, the Vasarts often used pieces of cane around the centre of vases where the upper and lower colours met. Sometimes the canes are clearly recognisable, but they usually appear as vague splashes of colour.
