This is a fine old piece which was quite dirty inside, a highly UV reactive uranium pale green glass compote, with an opaque graduated blue crimped rim. Molded with a rough pontil on base, the stem has some thin vertical lines, the interior has a rough area where the epergne or tulip would have fit in.

I found some complete ones, and they make a nice centerpiece. As far as identification, nothing specific yet. If you have any ideas, glad to hear them. Images taken in daylight with last one slightly lit up with UV in a somber area.

    Uranium glass is radioactive and can be detected by a Geiger. Not harmful levels.
    A black light bulb would really make it glow.nice collection.
