First identified in 1789 by a German chemist, uranium was soon being added to decorative glass for its fluorescent effect. London was one of the first to market the glowing glass, but other manufacturers soon released Uranium glass and later produced in North America.

Uranium glass was once made into tableware and household items, but fell out of widespread use when the availability of uranium to most industries was sharply curtailed during the cold War in the 1940s into the 1990s. Most such objects are now considered antiques or retro-era collectibles.
