I purchased an A.G. Smalley pat. April 5, 1898 milk bottle that I now realize that under U.V. light it is fluorescent yellow/green. The bottle is clear (colorless) in natural light. Is this common or is it the type of glass, Vaseline glass? I put a ring which I made the cabochon out of depression glass green. It is in the last picture. What do you all think? Not depression glass but still fluorescent.

I had it almost 2 years and had no idea it was fluorescent or that they made the smalleys in Vaseline glass. Was this common? Was Vaseline glass clear in natural light or green?

I don't really know the background to that company but it makes me wonder if any seemingly normal bottles in my own collection could be like this haha! Really cool!
