Title: Can anyone help identify this Yellow Uranium? Bohemian Cut Glass Bowl Please !
Post by: deebler on April 19, 2011, 12:23:45 AM
Hello everyone, I have lovely bowl, picture below. It's cut glass and a lovely yellow (Uranium ?, slightly radioactive yes)

Can you experts confirm who possibly made it ? Am I correct in it's bohemian.

Have looked and looked for information on this style is it something I have obviously missed ?

This bowl is a really something, and any information would add to its interest

Thanks

Ricardo

I am very sad in a way, and have Geiger counter and it gives a mild reading, not as high as other green glass I have which spins the counter.

My UV torch needs batteries at the moment to test, but will let you know.

Thanks
