Not sure where to post this - move as necessary

So bought this one to use, it has FRANCE in tiny letter on the base. But the coating seems to be on the outside and in parts it's scratched and coming off - the body seems to be a normal glass?

IS THIS SAFE TO USE? Shrugs  


I don't have Geiger counter so can't tell if it's supa radioactive but from what I read 99% are not supa dangerous

I think it's a plastic film. I've bought similar pieces thinking it was tinted glass but the surface scratched off so I dropped them back to the Charity shop

It does mark if scratched with a scalpel. It's like a matt slightly gritty coating to the glass wine glass. like it's been sprayed.

As it's on the outside it should be safe to use, but probably not dishwasher safe

Pity I can't really use this wine glass (Absinth glass?? it's marked French). Coz it lights up really well with a little handheld UV torch. it's a pity most of the Uranium glass is still stuck in the Victorian flower decoration era
