Hi

I bought this green whale which glows bright apple green under UV light, and is has a label on the base which says its Willamburg glass.

Try here:

They have a page for whimsies.

My other half is from Va.  Her folks have some repro 18C bottles made by Williamsburg glass in old colonial Williamsburg.

Barbara
