Thick, Heavy Jadeite Bowls or Ashtrays - McKee?
« on: July 21, 2012, 11:52:48 AM »
I'm hoping for help identifying these unmarked jadeite pieces.  I've scoured the 'net without success, and it's not in my Fire King book.  The larger one measures 5 3/4 inches (14.5 cm) wide.

Thanks,
Charles.

Are they Uranium glass?

No, they don't glow under black light.
