I borrowed a UV light and tried it out on all three Monart pieces and all turned bright green.

Three pieces? I see only two.
I don't know if D&D have any uranium Monart. I shall have to ask!

This is a new one on me. If I find a bit, Christine, it's yours!  :-*

There are two in the linked thread; similar shapes but slightly different decor

I thought that was different images of the same bowl - I had trouble following the text - my problem, not anything wrong with what was written.

In the Ian Turner Sale of his Monart glass there is definite instance of uranium glass and one possible case.
The definite one is in lot 21 a RI tray with the colour code 248 this is the same colour code as my RI tray (though it is a different size code). Lot 21 does not show up on Christies web site but there is a photo in the catalogue of the tray.
The possible one is lot 70 a Z shaped ginger jar. Gary

I must have tried with UV lamps long ago but don't recall getting any reacting so rarely bothered but I guess there were quite a few around in those colours. Just never seemed as interesting then as it does now with all the U interest.
