Sorry about that not like me to miss that bit out, yes did test it sorry no uranium   :'( I know how you like your uranium  :). To be honest had quite a bit of Davidson in this colour acid etched and don't think I have ever had a uv reactive one. And by the way its the seven inch version. Looking on Val and Chris Stewarts site it is quite rare in any colour. Cheers Mark

More just testing a theory than really expecting it to be U. The Stewarts claim no green uranium Davidson glass but I have a set of dishes and a salt that are and that looked as though it might be.

it's an attractive green frog, and I'm sure quite rare, and when frosted like this looks not a lot unlike Bagley's frosted green - some of which is definitely uranium.              Most of the domes can be put to good use - especially these larger ones  -  and it makes finding a pen or pencil a lot easier:)

They make handy holders on a dressing table for various bits and bobs like lip/eye pencils or makeup brushes. :)
