Webb's is known for including uranium for green glass and yellow-green glass, which they named, appropriately, Sunshine Amber. I have plenty of their glass and much does contain uranium. You may be right, but it does appear to have that alluring tinge.

They ARE uranium glass.  Under the blacklight they glow greenish.  Let all money change hands in the betting arena.  Thank for all your help with IDing these!

They have to glow more than greenish for me to lose. They have to be really bright green  :mrgreen: like Mr Green, see picture below. Yellow uranium glass is really bright. Manganese in glass gives a greenish glow, but not a bright green one

By the way Christine you would lose.  There was a glass recently on Ebay here in Australia and it glowed under black light.

Also there is a second version - much harder to find with clear over black and a slightly different engraved pattern.  I have a decanter, 3 goblets , a tumbler and a sherry.
