1920s Topaz Vaseline Footed Bowl
RARE Vintage 1920s Topaz Vaseline Opalescent Glass Footed Bowl. In regular light this bowl is a beautiful yellow with an opalescent rim. Aside from one light scratch, it is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or crazing noted. As shown in the listing photos, this piece glows brightly under black UV lighting due to the uranium content of the glass. Truly a wonderful item for use or display!
4 1/4 inches tall and 5 3/4 inches in diameter
Is Uranium Glass safe to use?
The normal colour of uranium glass ranges from yellow to green depending on the oxidation state and concentration of the metal ions, although this may be altered by the addition of other elements as glass colorants. Uranium glass also fluoresces bright green under ultraviolet light and can register above background radiation on a sufficiently sensitive Geiger counter, although most pieces of uranium glass are considered to be harmless and only negligibly radioactive.
