Ohhh that's nice Keith! I've seen the clear glass version before (think Max had one?) but not the uranium one.

very nice Keith  -  I have seen this version, but only once before...........I have a feeling this is quite a scarce item, worth hanging on to. :)

I was right and wrong... :o  it was Max, but hers was uranium too...  I missed that!

The topic has a link to this page too:
http://www.justglass.co.uk/Gallery/BDH/BDH018.htm and there's an entry in Black Country History referencing one in Broadfield House collection: http://blackcountryhistory.org/collections/getrecord/DMUSE_BH925/

I do have a ref pic of a clear one, but no idea where I found it!  ::)

Incidentally, there may be a blue cased one as well:

I have the Uranium one - the spider itself does not glow - but is cased in a glowing cage.
I love it.  ;D ;D ;D

Uranium's the bestest one, though.

The spider is rather lovely - beautifully represented.
