    I found this pair today at the thrift, sitting amongst hundreds of other orphaned drinking glasses. The stenciling caught my eye, and when I fished them out of the lot, I saw that much loved green and out came my keychain black light to confirm my thoughts. I did the ol one handed death grip on them and walked about the store all the while wondering why I had just found uranium glass that was stencilled. It's a bit perplexing for me and i'm just starting to look into the subject now, with some knowledge uranium salt was I think in use up into the 1970's or 80's.
    These glasses have, for 2" at the top, and about an inch at the bottom, kind of a ridged wavy feature of about 24 ridges total, and smooth in the mid section. It almost seems like a manufacturing 'tooling' marks rather than a decorative embellishment since it's not very noticeable until you touch them or look closely.

      Thank-you Avua for the love hit. And thank-you TassieDevil for your "Lovely" comment. It sure increases the pride of ownership thing with me. Thanks aura :), and thanks to my other cw pals mikelv85, racer4four, sklo42 and my BC buddie Caperkid. And a heartfelt thank-you to LovelyPat and mrcolorz. You both have great collections I see. Despite a fair bit of (re)searching for info on these 'hybrid' glasses, I have not 1 iota extra to add. BUT!, not the next day, or the the next day, but the next day, 3 more appeared on the shelf :). Scoop, gone. I happily have the ever so common (at least for me), set of 5 now. #6 could surly rests in pieces (r,i,p) somewhere.
