moreThis glowing goblet is a super rare antique imperial russian uranium glass goblet and saucer. Stamped on the underside with the company name "Maltsovskaya," the goblet also bears an embossed double headed eagle, which was the official emblem of pre-communist Imperial Russia. The few similar goblets I found in my research places the manufacture of this goblet and saucer anywhere between 1870 and 1900. The glass glows a super bright green/yellow under UV blacklight (see photos). This is a highly collectible vaseline glass set, and with so few in existence, they set fares well at auction.
The use of uranium dioxide in glass ware was popular from the mid-19th century until about 1940 (the beginning of World War II). Contrary to popular beliefs, the amount of radiation in uranium glass is not enough to make you grow a third eye or make your limbs fall off. In fact, you are exposed to higher levels of radiation simply by walking outside on a sunny day.
The goblet is only 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide. The saucer is 6.5 inches across and .75 inches high. Even though the hexagonal base of the goblet and the round saucer don't seem to be a match, the pair are always featured together in any research results I've found. The goblet is in superb condition. The saucer has had a rougher time of it, and has several nicks along its edges (see photos). The glass used for the saucer seems to have been a more brittle mix than that used for the goblet. That said, the saucer is still in good enough shape to be displayed with its partner.
This is highly collectible glass and should not be used for anything other than a curio cabinet display. These should never ever be placed inside a dishwasher, and should be cleaned only by hand with cool water and left to air dry. less

The glass mix used for the saucer seems to have resulted in a brittle glass. The saucer is intact, but care should be taken when handling to avoid additional erosion of the edges. The goblet has a tiny nick along one side of the underside of the base. This is from normal use, and the goblet is structurally sound. less
