Uranium 'pot' new or not.
« on: October 27, 2021, 11:55:32 AM »
3 inches tall, deception glass, candle stick or what ? what appears as a large polished pontil mark with little wear, quite heavy.

I've seen some modern drinking glasses Keith that have this all over shallow pontil depression appearance.     Are you convinced that the glow is uranium  -  looks a tad dull in the pix.    Agree it has a capacity that looks like it could be a deception glass, but have to say I've never seen a uranium toastmasters glass.     Sorry this is unhelpful.

Definitely uranium glass, just a poor photo, it's an odd thing.  ::)

It looks like there might be a reasonable amount of wear but itís hard to see as with the large pontil and upward curve of the base, it only sits on a thin sharp edge? Also looks like there might be quite a bit of wear to the rim from being stored upside down? Maybe one for the landlord rather than a toast master.

I was just about to comment on the wear on the very thin contact area Ekimp. It's difficult to tell what capacity it is but could it possibly be an Absinthe glass.

Just got a better lens on the base, there is a very fine line of wear, thanks NevB, Ekimp.

 :) Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder (after a few). Iíve not come across that but see itís a green liqueur - did they tend to serve it in green glasses Nev?

Yes they did, there are a lot of clear ones online but also some in uranium green, though they do tend to be stem glasses, some also have the moulded shape inside.
