1930s uranium Kellogg’s measuring cup

Kellogg's began giving prizes away in 1906 to help promote their cereals. They first gave books, then muffin tins. In the 1930s, they began giving away glass one-cup measuring cups that came in either pink or green. These were given away to help promote the cereal Kellogg's was introducing – All Bran. This is one of their green uranium measuring cups they would have given away 80-90 years ago! How cool! 

I love uranium depression glass! It is so beautiful and glows beautifully and bright under UV light! This glass color is a mixture of radioactive uranium and copper (and some other minerals which provide variation in the greens) and was used until uranium was removed from the market in 1941 due to the war. 

Radioactive glass is understood to be safe for use due to its age and the half live of uranium. It is a very interesting piece of history and a great conversation piece!
