Vintage Uranium Green Glass Lidded Trinket Dish

Vintage uranium green glass trinket dish with matching hexagonal shaped lid.

 

This beautiful Art Deco style dish would make a lovely addition to your dressing table or desk for organising jewellery or stationery items or make a statement piece on a display shelf. 

 

History: Uranium glass fluoresces under UV light due to the uranium added to the glass mix before melting for coloration. It was made into tableware and household items, but fell out of widespread use when the availability of uranium to most industries was sharply curtailed during the Cold War in the 1940s to 1990s. 

 

Measures approx. 12cm x 8cm high including handle.

 

There are some minor chips on the inner lid to be expected with use, but in overall good vintage condition with no cracks to the glass. Please see photos as these form part of the description.
