Green Glass stemware
« on: March 13, 2016, 09:20:17 PM »
Vaseline or is it Uranium Glass?

Cut sherry glass. 6 1/4" tall.
Photo does not do it justice - it is a simply stunning glass.

Any ideas of origins, makers, pattern, dating it will be appreciated.



Christening it tonight with some cabernet sauvignon -
but in the future this will be my absinthe glass. Perfection!

Wicked absinthe in wicked uranium - love it!

and not suitable  for cab sov. These are white wine glasses from a glass service, so try a chardonnay instead.

This model was already catalogued in 1904/1905 but no mention of uranium, but considering VSL stopped uranium products in the 30ies, I guess you can consider it comes from anytime in between these years.

LOL Probably not Ivo but I just wanted to use it. I use many of my glasses for water as well.
I like to use the "ice teas" for water and don't use my water goblets. Too big, bulky and tall.
Everything just tastes better in a beautiful glass.

I did see the cut pattern for that catalog (Ostende). ?
Replacements has the Eurydice clear with 1951 - 1963 dates.
Don't know if it means manufactured or discontinued those years.
I haven't seen much about their uranium.

It is nice to know where this glass came from.

Again, it was already in the catalogue for 1904/1905.
It is also in the catalogue 1945-1950, but it can't be from that period as VSL didn't produce any uranium glass anymore.
I have no info as from when it was taken out of production, unfortunately.

In the future I'll make sure not to post the information if I find that the item is in a catalog.

I'm sorry but I don't understand ... have I said something wrong? My apologies if you feel I have.

I will say this because Anne will probably not - English is not her first language.

There are many contributors to this site from around the world and we are far richer because of their input.
