Featured is a set of great pieces of green Depression glass. These Champagne or Tall Sherbet Cups are from Hazel Atlas Glass and part of the Florentine 2 pattern which was produced from 1932-35. This mold-etched pattern was offered in this Killarney Green as well as Topaz (yellow) and Sunset (pink). These pieces are in excellent vintage condition and BONUS - they're uranium glass so they glow brilliantly under UV light (see photo). All four pieces offered here for one low price.
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.
