Uranium Glass Citrus Squeezer

R130.00

I love the crazy colour of uranium glass, which believe it or not actually contains traces of uranium in it, which is why some people will refer to it as ‘radioactive glass’, but in reality it’s completely safe to use. Because of its popularity in the late 1920s it’s also often referred to as ‘Depression era’ glass – a lot of uranium glass was given away as promotional items during the Great Depression to try and encourage people to buy goods, or ‘Vaseline glass’ – the yellow version of this glass was said to resemble petroleum jelly. Regardless of its name, I love the vibrancy of the colour, and the shape of this wonderful art deco citrus squeezer, which happens to be in excellent condition! Not only will it do a proper job of squeezing your oranges and lemons, but you know it’s going look fabulous on display!

Dimensions: 14cm in diameter x 9cm tall
