Custard glass, which has a creamy, custard-like look to it, takes on an otherworldly appearance when held under a black light. Glass that looks white, yellowish, or even blue under normal lighting glows a deep color, such as emerald green, under a black light, thanks to the uranium content in the glass. This adds to the ways to visually enjoy this special glass. Souvenir custard glass was sold at tourist destinations and features imagery or wording, such as "Souvenir of Dell Rapids, South Dakota," indicating its origin. These pieces are often small items, such as toothpick holders and teacups, that are easy to stash in suitcases. Not all custard glass pieces are souvenirs. A Fenton custard vase looks both delicate and elegant. A style with white custard glass and a ruffled pink glass rim makes a pretty accessory to flowers. Other pieces feature peacock or basketweave textures visible under black light. No matter which types of custard glass items you like best, the sellers on eBay offer a vast selection that spans many decades.
