Yellow uranium vaseline pressed glass optic bowl set of 7
Uranium Glass Roemer Style
Are you familiar with this yellow colored glass? The hue is achieved by adding uranium to the molten glass. It is slightly radioactive (about as much as regular sun exposure so don’t panic) and was initially loved because of the way it is illuminated in candlelight. Now, if you expose it to a black light IT GLOWS! Super cool. This set of 7 glasses was made by Bryce Bros in the 20’s or 30s. The “Roemer” style of the stem you may have seen in a common green glass, but finding it in uranium (also called Vaseline Glass) is unusual! The bowls are slightly ribbed to sparkle. Each glass is 6″ tall and the bowl is 2.25″ in diameter.
