    This salt in Primrose Pearline glass dates from 1891, & was manufactured by George Davidson of Gateshead. It measures 4 cm tall, 6 cm across the scalloped top rim, & 5 cm across the footed base. It is marked on the inside with Rd. 176566, which dates it to 1891. It contains uranium & glows brightly under UV light as can be seen in the fourth image.
    This was a lucky cheap find & my first ever piece of Primrose Pearline. A classic example of Victorian pressed glass & oh so British!
