Thanks for posting the pics.  Actually that's how I would expect it to look if it didn't have any uranium.  Maybe it just has something else such as manganese causing a bit of a green glow, that doesn't show up on camera?

Finally spotted another one of these with a label [here].  Not labelled Davidson though, but ICET of Venezuela.  More info on ICET [here].

So, if these are the same make, then there must be some link between Davidson and ICET, or probably more likely, the Davidson label doesn't belong after all.

There sure does seem to be a lot of these around in the UK though.  :huh:

There are loads of them about!! Maybe it was a marketing arrangement. The Davidson label doesn't actually say Made in England

That's a very good point!  Also the ICET label says Murano as well as Venezuela, so we could have Murano glass, made in Venezuela, sold by a British manufacturer!!
