Another pair of G P Tye uranium glass hyacinth vases both marked G P TYE REGISTERED NOVEMBER 4 1850.

Both have traces of scrolling gilding.
Height 5.75"

Both glow very brightly under a UV light as shown.

Sounds like the stamps with the ghost letters underneath must be a common problem. Both I bought recently have them. The one is clearer than the other.

One of them weighs 358g and the other 464g, amount of glass probably affected the moulding and clarity of the base stamp.
