During WWII the US government banned the use of uranium in glass.The first pic shows a prewar(uranium glass) and postwar lamps made by Aladdin.

    Hedge, you're the best person to ask, I think. I found a light green Coca-Cola fountain style glass, and you know what?, It's uranium glass, any ideas on date? will post pics when I get batteries for camera, it died after I got the white light shot

    It glows bright green under blacklight? If so it is pre WWII. Or a recent repro ,which I doubt . I have never seen one.I have seen old Coke bottles that are Uranium glass.They are rare and go for $100 + on Ebay.Cool find kerry !!

    Why did they ban it? They needed the ingredients that are part of the "recipe"? What for? Bombs?
    These are beautiful Hedge.

    Amber I think it was a combo of the US wanting tight control due to testing , and fear of it falling into enemy hands.The use of uranium in warfare was still new then. Little was known of it's full potential.
