Anne - I really bought it to check for a glow from the clear crystal casing on my Whitefriars glass. According to the "receipe book" from the factory this included a tiny amount of Sodium uranate for a while - so it might just be possible to distinguish WF cased items from the various scandi look-a-likes. But I can't always see any glow...
Glen - many thanks for that
I would agree that the glow from the Scroll Embossed bowl is not very strong but the Shell & Sand is very bright. Unfortunately I don't have any Vaseline prime carnival to compare it too
I haven't got any Fenton white or any red at all either for that matter
(would love a Peacock Tails bowl in white...) Talking of very bright glow, I do have a modern Boyd toothpick holder and that really sings! http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7861
You can just see my torch to the right. Thanks again.
Christine - I'm open to offers on the Sowerby bowl, it's in really pretty good condition (if you look really
closely there is the odd tiny fleabite to the base and maybe a couple on the rim) hardly any wear at all though, just about 7.5" diameter. Email me if you're interested
