Uranium glass vase with 4 stepped feet.

This glows wonderfully in sunshine.  I haven't tried a UV light yet but expect it will do the same.  It doesn't appear in Pamela's Museum or the catalogues link and I'm just wondering if anyone recognises it.  It has four distinctive feet with a stepped pattern.  The pattern continues vertically as horizontal ridges.

TIA :)

Try Sowerby, I have a rosebowl the same and I thought that was Sowerby. I'll look later...

Re: Uranium glass vase with 4 stepped feet. (Sowerby 2750?)

It didn't look Sowerby to me and I immediately thought Czech, but you are right :) :hiclp:  Thanks for the prompt.  I've found a near match in Glen & Stephen's 'Sowerby's Ellison Glass Works Vol.Two George V to Elizabeth II' i.e. Illustrated list c.1940s page 4. 

A 'cupped' 8" high version (no.2750) is shown and there is mention of a 'straight' version but this isn't shown.   The cupped one shown came in amber, flint, blue and green, but no mention of uranium glass.  The cupped version also appears in Illustrated List no. 38 1956 p.5.  I'm just wondering if mine is the straight version, even though it flares outwards at the top (which would also probably account for it being over 9" tall too)?  Hopefully Glen will look in sometime.

I think green was uranium until it stopped being uranium, if you see what I mean

I think the catalogues were indicative rather than comprehensive. My rose bowl isn't shown but it has the same feet as the right hand rose bowl with the pattern of the left hand bowl. There's matching cress set on page 12 as well.
