Another worthwhile visit to the Glass Fair. I'd gone with very specific aims - I'm trying to limit my collecting, but like many collectors I cannot resist interesting things that don't really go with the rest of the stuff I've acquired, and this time was no exception - an odd glass ?rummer ?firing glass - in a brownish-yellow Uranium metal. Glows under UV. It looks early 19th century, and I think it's British, so it must be one of the earlier pieces to be made in Uranium glass. I'll post a picture when I get the chance.
