Vincent Ysart, Augustine Ysart, and Salvador Ysart
- 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.
- The work they produced was similar to designs they originally created when working at Monart.
- The factory changed its name to Vasart Glass in 1956.
- The name changed again in 1965, this time to Strathearn Glass. Designs at Strathearn were changed slightly, but were very similar to Vasart designs.
- The factory was taken over by Stuart Glass in 1980, and renamed Stuart Strathearn Ltd.
- Production ceased in 1992.
