Does it glow bright green under a UV light, because it doesn't look like uranium glass to me?

Possibly just a 'forato' vase instead of a jug/ewer? handle looks awkward/too small ?

Possible,although it does have a purposeful looking groove running under the potential spout.

Is the hole hand-formed? Are there seams inside it?

It's not terribly bright, is it?
Christine taught me to use the "6 foot test". If it still glows when the UV source is 6 feet away, it's not manganese and dust. ;D
