Back in early January 2006, Bernard provided an extremely interesting contribution on this unusual article of glass, and requested in particular that the following URL be used when referring to his article ... http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,3950.0.html
. Thanks for the research Bernard.
I'd not seen one in the flesh before today, although I was aware of Barrie Skelcher's pictures and text in the author's 'Big Book of Vaseline Glass' (page 156) - and think I'm correct in saying that there doesn't appear to be any current images on the GMB (it's possible that Frank did provide something, but that seems to have disappeared).
So.....here are a couple of pictures of one containing uranium...........although it would seem that not all examples were made with uranium (according to Barrie Skelcher) - presumably some were simply green glass. Size is approx. 2.5/8" long x 1.7/8" wide x 1.1/8" high.
However, if you haven't yet gone to bed Bernard, question please............we know the copyright for the Registration No. was held by Lillicrap, although the hone was in fact made by Wood Bros. - and the Rd. No. mentioned in your notes is 756250. Was this a typo
- as the example I now have shows quite clearly Rd. No. 756950, and believe the example in Skelcher is the same - or were there two versions?
For reasons I'm unaware of, 756950 is missing from the 'Blue Book' - although obviously people have done their research, otherwise we would not know the maker was Wood Bros.
Do read Bernards original notes, they are very interesting and well worth the time.
