It does indeed look like it's uranium - and it's just glorious!

that edge colour is a dead ringer for u.          Try it in the sunlight tomorrow morning (if we get any), although you'd probably get more sunshine in the other Perth. ;)

Gary:
The sun is shining brightly in the Fair City of Perth this afternoon and I took the tray outside to the back garden and the tray looks much greener in the sun light.
Thanks Christine for the link on uranium/vasiline glass, most informative, I agree Sue it is a glorious piece.
