While we are shining the flashlight on the plate a lady behind us is all 'Oh that's pretty! What makes it do that?' So I tell her it's Uranium depression glass. She gets this weird pinched look on her face and kind of goes 'Oh....Uranium?'
My kid, Gd love her. goes 'Yes! And I'm going to eat off of it until I die!' very brightly. This lady starts looking horrified so I try to explain that it won't hurt anyone and my kid is just dramatic. But my dad pipes up 'oh yes very deadly! She collects it and traps people in her house with it'
So now there is some woman around here who is going to not only be terrified of Uranium Glass but think I use it as a weapon and force my children to eat off it.
This is how thrifting goes in my family lol.
Unfortunately the plate was really my only find except for a Fire King Pear bowl. I'll post a pic below. It's a bit faded and the painting isn't as good anymore but it was $.50 so I didn't care lol
