It is a well known and popular fact that in late 1800s England, Arsenic was used as a key ingredient in dye to achieve a certain hue of green (in fabrics, wallpapers, etc). However, glass is not a textile (as convenient as that would be).

Several fun things I learned while doing research for this prop and page:

  • In the Victorian era, colored glass was cheaper to manufacture than clear glass.
  • Glass' natural color is green (in various shades).
  • Uranium Glass was a brief fad until the Cold War, when the material that produced its vibrant color became heavily regulated.
