These four Diana champagne / tall sherbet dishes were made by Federal Glass Company between 1937 to 1941. These sherbet dishes are made of Vaseline or Uranium glass as they glow under a blacklight. These sherbet dishes are marked with the f with a shield surrounding it on the bottom, the mark of Federal Glass.
These dishes measure approximately 4″ in diameter and 2-3/4″ tall. These are in excellent vintage condition with only minor wear, although one of them does have a small nick at the top. They do contain some bubbles, which is common in glass manufactured in this era. There are no other chips, cracks or nicks on the other three dishes. Please look at the photos closely.
Uranium glass is glass which has had uranium added to a glass mix before melting. Uranium glass for tableware and household items had widespread use from the end of the 19th century through the 1940s. During the depression years, more iron oxide was added to the mixture so that the glass matched a more popular shade of green. The use was then curtailed due to the confiscation of uranium supplies due to the Cold War.
