Wynkin Collection

Wynkin, is the blogs most prolific commentor and Ouraline glass collector. This is a 19th century, French, handblown, ouraline, torsade wedding glass, seven and a half inches tall. It is fluorescing in ultra violet light, due to the pitchblende (uranium rich naturally occuring ore, containing UO2) it contains. I will raise a glass to you both… Here’s to your health and happiness in 2021!
