A vintage uranium air bubbles paperweight to ID
« on: August 29, 2022, 10:55:00 AM »
Hello All,

I have got this unique air bubbles paperweight and it turns out the vaseline-coloured parts are made from uranium glass.

Any idea about the maker or name of this kind of weight?

Cheers, Peter

I believe these to be Czech, or at least from that part of the world. I have one too http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=3023
