Leerdam uranium glass vase?

That is a very difficult one, optical blown ball vase with cut rim is certaily in the style of Leerdam, but there is no telling if it is. There are other sources for these as well - so my guess is: perhaps Leerdam, perhaps Maastricht, perhaps something else  1/3rd 1/3rd 1/rd chance in equal proportions

it looks a bit dark for Leerdam uranium. Leerdam uranium is really very light - ask Patricia to check it for you when she gets there, she can tell them apart.  :P

Not pressed, but ...

Ivo is quite right to observe that this is a 'two mould' blown process, and isn't strictly speaking 'pressed glass' at all.

Does that mean we have to go somewhere else to discuss it? ;-)

(I'd guess it's current value is about 40-60 euros, genuine uranium green, called 'anna-groen' in Dutch factories was produced in the pre-war period and would fetch about twice the price.)
Post war greens were mostly more emerald or turquoise in tone.
