Oh yes, that's uranium glass. Can identify the glow from here without a UV light. No idea about manufacturer though   :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I have seen a few of these labels lately. Not to rain on parade, but the glass that I've seen has not been very good. Because of this, I don't think there is much merit to the labels. I don't know who made the glass.
