Featured here is a nice antique bowl from Fenton. This six-sided piece is from the Waterlily and Cattails pattern which was produced between 1908 and 1912. It measures about 8 1/4 inches across (side to side) or 9 inches across (point to point). The outside is heavily embossed and it's got a green opalescent rim. The bowl is about 3 inches deep. There are some interior utensil scratches and a couple small chips on the rim of the round base on the underside of the bowl. Not bad after being around for over 100 years. Beautiful glow under UV light. A spectacular addition to your vintage glass collection. Ready to shine in your display cabinet.
Uranium glass is glass which has had uranium, usually in oxide diuranate form, added to a glass mix before melting for coloration. The proportion usually varies from trace levels to about 2% by weight uranium, although some 20th-century pieces were made with up to 25% uranium. Uranium glass was once made into tableware and household items, but fell out of widespread use when the availability of uranium to most industries was sharply curtailed during the Cold War in the 1940s to 1990s. Most such objects are now considered antiques or retro-era collectibles.
I've got a large selection of vintage glassware including more uranium glass, Vaseline glass, colored Depression glass, Amberina, and more. Visit my site, WrenchesandWonders.com.
