    Had an oooh moment this afternoon when I ran a UV torch across the glassware on my shelf. The snake blazed like a green coiled spring. Showed them originally here ..

    Photos don't show the glow terribly well. Wondered if there was a phosphorescent green glass available in the late Victorian early Edwardian era or if it was uranium glass. Sadly I have sold my old geiger counter. What are your thoughts on the snakes material?

    Nice Bohemian, early 20th. I'd say uranium glass.
