ID of Maker of this Purple Uranium Glass Bowl

Post by mjron on September 30th 2014, 6:30 pm

Hi!

I was hoping that someone might recognize the maker of this handled bowl. It's made in a purple color and glows bright green under a UV light. I thought that it might be a Heisey piece in one of their experimental colors, but I can't find this color in my Heisey references. Any other ideas?

No idea who made your bowl, sorry. It does not glow brightly enough to be uranium glass though, very often that dull green glow is the result of manganese.

Manganese in high concentrations is a purple colorant
