Hi guys,

Is anyone able to provide info on this unusual pressed uranium glass bowl with all-over iridescence/lustre please? I literally have no idea of its origin. Here's some pics - I hope its of interest to some of you.

Cheers, Charlene

P.S. Its 8.5'' in diameter and weighs 0.8kg

Strongly resembles Tiffin Reflex Green.

Can't help with attribution but looks as though it's part of a centrepiece and should go on a stand (fine without though).

Made by Fenton Art Glass (Williamstown, West Virginia, USA) in the 1920s, this bowl shape is described as "flared [and] cupped" in catalogs because of the techniques used to finish it. The H. Northwood Co. made similar shapes, but this one looks like the Fenton version. These typically came with a separate black base.

Thanks too to Christine for your polite prompt about this. And thanks for your friendly replies on all things uranium (or not). Much appreciated.
