I've posted this before but no one seemed to know much, thought I'd try again.

On the photo-page thumbnails go to MUCH larger photos.

13.5" tall
Phosphorus dayglo yellow
Clearly Pontiled
Neck non-molded, appears hand worked - lip uneven, has small bubble
Glows orange-yellow under blacklight, mainly in neck and tail where color is more concentrated and glass is thicker.
NO damage, pristine condition, really clean, was a display item in grandpa's house.
From Dayton/Springfield Ohio area - probably bought in same region...

NO embossed words of any kind.

Well it came close to one in the bitter class but I beleive it to be a bottle vase, It looks like vaseline glass with radition salts in the batch. Maybe someone else could say but I would wonder if ever a opalescent glass was used for bottles as people like to look at the content. Hope you get more help and I will be trying on something else.
