    I found this today when I picked up a bunch of Vaseline glass inexpensively at a thrift store. But I've never seen anything like it before. I thought it was a salt pinch at first but this thing it is kind of large and deep for that. Does anyone have any ideas? It is 1 3/4 inches tall and 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 wide.

      Vaseline glass is yellow like the petroleum jelly for which it is named so it isn't Vaseline. Probably depression glass would be a better category. Most likely is a salt cellar.

      It is most definitely Vaseline glass. I've been collecting it for over 20 years. And it registers on the Geiger counter.

      And there is this.

      The article does not contradict me. I believe paragragh two touches on the controversy. I would add that Vaseline glass and green glass have separate patterns and manufaturers. Vaseline is associated with EAPG and green glass with depression glass. Yes both glow and have uranium.
