OLD GLASS MAY HAVE WEAR TO THE BASE, CHIPS, SCRATCHES OR MINOR FLEA BITES. Info for you I have found on American brilliant cut and pressed glass: It is estimated that 90-95% of old pieces fluoresce lime-green when exposed to fluorescent black light in a dark room. The intensity of the lime-green could vary from a strong apple green to a tinge of green. Some old pieces do not fluoresce at all.
Some old pieces have been reported to fluoresce pink, purple or orange. The pink or purple is most probably a reflection from the fluorescent black light itself and not actual fluorescence. Some people see the lime green as more of an orange color. New pieces tend to fluoresce dusty rose or not at all. Cut glass produced during the last quarter of the 19.Century and the first quarter of the 20. Suffice it to say that the ABPned about 40 years to the end of World War I, at which point it began its decline into the 1920s and 1930s.
" "American colorless pressed glass made before 1930 is said to fluoresce yellow, while reproductions generally do not. Some people report that American brilliant cut glass also casts a yellow hue under ultraviolet light, others say it glows pale violet or blue. Given the discrepancies, make sure to follow up with further research to ensure cut glass authenticity.
