Ebay Listings of some possibly interesting things
« on: February 13, 2010, 07:53:12 PM »
Hello fellow Glassaholics

I'm currently in the process of dispersing all the glass we've collected over the last 20 years in the sudden and somewhat overwhelming thought that if we have to move house we're never going to shift it!!!!

Having consulted the powers that be it seems the best way to direct you to a stream of potential bargains is this:

Hope it works.

Works a treat Annie, well done. :) 

I just had a scan down and your green footed bowl, probably Webb, probably isn't. I have one the same only taller size and it was ID'd here on the board as Stuart Stratford pattern. See http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,30204.0.html and http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,25768.0.html for more about these. HTH :)

Yes though we don't photograph them lit up.  Perhaps we should.  I'll talk to the photo slave though with the volume of stuff we have to go I suspect he may go into meltdown .... never good with uranium about  :24:

He wouldn't like my house then! I don't think photographing under UV is necessary, but you had a couple of pieces I couldn't be sure about. ebayers often use the term uranium for anything green and when you ask if it glows, they tell you they don't have a UV light! How do they know it's uranium? I would just suggest adding that you've tested it and that it glows bright green under a UV light. Note that it must be really bright, not just a bit green.

[As an aside. The term uranium-green really gets up my nose, because uranium is actually a yellow colorant.]
