This is my collection of uranium glass. I started collecting in October last year when I retired with the intention of collecting vintage coloured glass, Whitefriars etc, but then I found a piece of uranium glass and now.....!

 :) Nev, have a look at the My Gallery link under Lustrousstone's signature.
I think you'll find lots and lots of stuff to tickle your fancy there.
Did you know that green is not the only colour Uranium glass comes in? It can be shades of yellows, several shades of amber, blue, turquoise and even the odd bit of pink.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hello Sue, yes I've several yellow and amber pieces, see photo, but I've only seen one blue piece locally which was a lovely decanter and glasses, possibly Baccarat, which was priced at 200.

You might need Lustrousstone to help you with the goblet.  :)

This is a link to something on the first page of the "My Gallery" - aqua uranium.

Hello you all
as i mentioned Im a little crazy because A collect every glass which affects me somehow.

I start with my collection of vases which are inspired from volumetric flasks out of the lab. the second picture, I put some of these bottles beside. These lab bottles are old as well, one is with the normal temperature of 15 C which was changed to 20C in the beginning of the 20C , so this bottle has to be 100 years old.

the big violett one and the violett with the long neck I dont know from where they are. The bigger green one is Pukeberg Sweden, the small green one is ingrid glass. the amber onbe is veeeeeerrrryyy thin, lihght as a butterfly with wave rim and poked into the bulb. the red one I agin have no clou where it is from.

the next 2 pictures are my window ceiling in the bath room. Starting on the left side with old cod bottles 1 >German one American and 2 from Dublin. they laying bottle is I think very old as well, but i dont know anything about it., the a couple of green , old medicin bottles follow and than a lot of old labority equipment follows. in the end brown glas from a lot different uses and apothecary glasses.

I hope you like them, and see the next post, there I go on with the bath ceiling

here comes the rest of my window ceiling in the bath room.

left we start with Holmegaard michael Bang the carneby serie, follwoed from a Otto Brauer Gulvase inspired vase, I doubt that mine is a Gulvase. the 2 Tango vases, the bigger one might be Ltz, but is damaged, the small one has the black stribes only "painted". then a long collection of Klukflasks follows, mostly Holmegaard and Kastrup.

Interesting collection you have there.... I'm sure some of the members here will be able to help you attribute makers to the pieces you are not sure of. :)

 ;D I've been waiting for these. You even have some REAL volumetrics - my hands can just feel what it's like holding the neck and gently swirling the bottom around to dissolve something - they have such a pleasing feel, balance and weight.  ;D ;D ;D

Your glass is all shiney. You've been cleaning it, I can tell.   ;)
I've cleaned mine up a bit too, but haven't any pics yet. I discovered my really massive red one is actually a lamp base! It's got a hole drilled in the bottom. I found out when I lifted it (ever so carefully and gently!) out of the sink and soaked myself.

All these bottles and lab style stuff looks fabulous against your white lab-like bathroom. It's the perfect backdrop.
Do you consider your kitchen and bathrooms to just be other laboratories too?
Ones where you can practise bucket chemistry!
Cheers, Sue (M)

having a lamp foot in shape of these flasks must be gourgios.

Im working in a lab, so collecting lab glass is enough of lab at home, during the day I have enough chemestry.

When I was child I practissed some chemisty in the cellar of my parents, they were not so happy, they wanted me to work in a bank, much to boring to me ;D.

yes you are right, these are cleaned , but not for the pics,  I did it 2 weeks ago. Im working on an excell sheet in the moment were I discribe every item, giving numbers and linking them to my photo database.

I`m nearly 60 and Im afraid that once I could die and my brother looks at all the glass and brings it to a glass container. I started in the bathroom and by giving the numbers, I cleaned them.

I will go on to present my glass, may be we come to some discussions by this.
