Uranium oxide was first used as a coloring agent in the 1830s; vaseline glass was produced commonly from the 1840s through World War I, though it was most popular from the 1880s onward. A variety of companies produced it, including Adams & Co., Steuben Glass, Cambridge Glass Co., and Baccarat, which released its first vaseline glass piece in 1843 under the name “cristal dichroide.”

I wish I knew when these were made.
