Uranium yellow pressed glass salts
« on: July 02, 2012, 02:14:43 PM »
These look very like ones shown in an Edward Moore catalogue, and similar to a design shown in a Sowerby catalogue.  However, I don't think this colour was made by Sowerby.  Did Edward Moore produce glass in this very bright yellow colour?  They might have been made by A-nother of course.  Needless to say, they glow incredibly under a U.V. light :o
Thank you for any help ;)

Manchester companies made items in bright yellow uranium roughly 1850 to 1870, perhaps longer than that.
Have a look at salts 323 and 339 on this page, they look quite close

Both Sowerby and Moore also used the bright yellow in that late Victorian period.

Thanks very much folks ;)
It certainly looks a very good match for Molineaux Webb no.339!
