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.
