I have a real love for this green uranium glass! The colours vary quite a lot between pieces, but the glass always has this great acid green hue to it. All three of these pieces are fantastic examples, but I particularly like the Handimaid measuring jug. It has a few small chips along the spout and the rim, but overall it’s in decent nick for its age – most sites date this jug to the 1940s. The citrus squeezer is also quite special – I see plain glass versions quite often, but I think that this is the very first time I’ve seen one in green! And the bowl has some lovely details too – the base of the bowl is almost scalloped, and the lip of the bowl curls over to make it easy to grip. The bowl looks like it was well used in its time and has quite a few scratches, although no chips or cracks, but the citrus squeezer seems to be in mint condition with not a mark on it!
Note: The Handimaid measuring jug is for sale for a crazy $50 on ebay!
