My latest hobby for the past year

Postby lucky43113 » Fri Aug 31, 2018

My collection of Mosser glass Turkey toothpick holders all made in Cambridge Ohio. I have the largest collection known to exist. I have no idea what all colors are left. Even though the company is still in business they never kept records of the colors they made these turkeys in.

No those are all clear glass but most older clear glass turns green under blacklight. I do have some vaseline and uranium glass

They added manganese to help clarify the glass but under UV light it turns green, one downside is if the glass is left in the sun long enough it will turn purple with is considered damaged since some do it on purpose now and sell it to tourist.

Neat. My late aunt had a large collection made of the glass glass that glows green under certain light.

It is a tray, the divots are raised on the back side. Smooth on the front side.
Measures 10.5" wide and 7" top to bottom.
