This is a wonderful green vaseline glass bowl with handles. This bowl has the most wonderful design that reminds me of a woven basket or bamboo basket.
What is vaseline glass? Vaseline or 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. This wonderful glassware glows under a black light.
This piece is in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or nicks and only minor wear. This piece does contain bubbles, common in glass of this era (see last photo).
This piece measures approximately 6-1/4″ width by 7-3/4″ wide at handles by 2-1/4″ tall and 3″ tall at the handles.
This lovely piece, made with uranium vaseline glass, glows in the dark with a black light. What a great piece to use for evening entertaining! I love, love, love this type of glass.
