Frank the ginger jar in the Ysart Glass book (page 71 plate 49), looks like the same decoration style (coloured whorls and clear) and colour scheme as the RI uranium tray with the colour 248. Is that ginger jar the same one from the I Turner collection sold at Christies in 2003.

Not in Perth museum, I have viewed the Monart glass collection twice and photographed every piece apart from what is on display and a couple of AF bowls and some Y pin dishes (fairly ordinary pieces).

Maybe Ian bought it in the Parkington sale.

Below are two images of my latest purchase, it is Monart, shape code IG size code 1V (12 inches wide) colour code unknown,citrine with orange and yellow splashes with bubble inclusions.
When I purchased the piece the vendor mentioned he thought it possibly was uranium glass.
I borrowed a UV light today and it is indeed uranium glass.

Thanks Nigel, I am well pleased with the bowl.
The colour scheme (IMHO) shows Salvador at his most creative.

Gary, your photos of the bowl probably confirm something that has been noticed with some millefiori canes.

The green of the glass in the bowl appears to be like that of a cane centre that has been seen in one or two canes in paperweights. Looks like this is a nod to a cane or two being made using the uranium glass rather than the usual clear glass for the central element.

With the UV light on the bowl it shows up green, especially where there is clear glass in the bowl (which there is some), and a green hue shows through the original citrine (yellowish) colour of the bowl with UV light.
