My new love…

Mercury glass.

What exactly is mercury glass?

“Mercury glass, also known as “poor man’s silver”, is clear glass coated with a solution of silver nitrate and grape sugar to produce a mirror-like finish. Over time, the silver coating chips and flakes off, giving it that old, tarnished look…”

I’ve always loved it, but I’ve come to REALLY love it lately & am always drawn to pictures of it, whether in the form of lamps, votives, candlesticks, christmas ornaments….doesn’t matter, I love it all!
