Bagley Rutland dressing table set

Alison:
Hi, could anyone tell me if the Bagley Rutland green dressing table set is uranium or not?
best regards
Alison

Lustrousstone:
Yes and no!  ;D Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't. Uranium tends to be rarer

Alison:
Hi, so can you only tell by using a uv light source? and, where do you buy one?
best regards
Alison

Anne:
Folks like Christine can tell without a UV light but the rest of us mortals need one.  :thup:

Maplins have them if you've one nearby, or check out their webshop if not: www.maplins.co.uk.

Lustrousstone:
If you actually have it, post a picture. I can usually tell Bagley from a photo, although I'm not infallible, despite what Anne says  :24:

UV lights can also be found ebay, but a Maplins one is likely to have a better quality LED. A key ring light is adequate for "shopping" purposes. Remember you must get a bright green reaction and be able to see it in daylight (but not necessarily bright sunlight). A keyring light held close to the glass will give a bright green beam in the glass. Further away it's more likely just to give a "brightening" effect.
