      Hmmmm? I’d check those vases for radio activity as they could be dangerous. Beautiful but lethal like radium was.

      Thanks Valentino97 probably from the 20s maybe the Tiffin might be a little earlier

      Thank you Newfld I kinda like it too

      Rattletrap I have never heard that have always heard there was no chance of radio activity leakage from glass maybe I should look into it a little more

      there is a regulation act around 1913 i believe concerning vaseline glass, and the reason was a sort 3%- 24 % uranium compound legislation and the application of the legislation was quite severe, and it does, not work , because people did,not the difference with the normal depression glass

      somewere around 1957-1958-1959 came the deregulation act due to to the fact that the uranium compound was diminished , as long if you don,t or rub it or cut the glass , the danger is neglectable, nowadays we are more exposed to uranium for different reasons ( hospitals etc)

      there has been a extended survey on cadmium , which was rather disturbing , the state of California even forbid the import of an amount of artifacts

      and the Plymouth released a quite disturbing about plumbum and cadmium

      so uraneum glass is a minor comparing to those

      i say it again and probably for the 20196 time and i dont want to be patronizing , you have to know the legislation if you buy glass , uv and Geiger counter ought to be standard procedure
