    Something seemed a bit out of the usual on this one so I grabbed it for a couple of bucks. Didn't occur to me when I grabbed it but once I got it home I wondered - maybe this is custard/uranium glass? Hit it with the UV flashlight and it glowed like mad. 7" tall - 8 1/2" wide at the top rim. 4" wide at the base. No marks. I guess it sorta kinda reminds me of czech tango shapes but clearly it isn't that. Any ideas? Thanks for looking!!

    Check out Cambridge Glass Sweet Pea Vase in a color they called Primrose. Not saying that's it, but it sure looks like it. The Primrose color was a soft yellow and only made for a short time. I don't know if it reacted under UV light because I've never had a piece of it to test.

    There's a completed listing on eb that shows a primrose bowl that reacts to UV light.
