Vaseline or Uranium glass is a transparent yellow to yellow-green glass owing its color intensity to the uranium content. Vaseline glass became popular in the mid-19th century with its greatest popularity being from the late 1880's to the 1920's. The term Vaseline glass is based on a perceived resemblance of petroleum jelly as formulated and commercially sold at this time in history.
This lovely Vaseline or Canary glass spoon holder, circa 1920, has a simple, yet elegant design. The plain round base and pedestal flows into the bowl with a inverted diamond pattern with slightly flared top edge. The piece measures 6 1/8"" in height, 3 3/4" across the top and 3 1/4"" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Would serve a wonderful smaller size vase.
