MERCURY GLASS

Mercury Glass, also called silvered glass, was first made in the 1850's in Bohemia.  It was also called the "poor man's silver" and made to resemble "real" silver.  Actually mercury glass can be considered the first true art glass.  It's glittering beauty makes it a real collectible.
I'm now excited to represent, Golden Hills Studio, which is reproducing some beautiful mercury glass pieces.  Here are just a few.

I love mercury glass. I just bought a mercury trinket box from Anthropologie to hold my rings. Thanks for stopping by Inspired Design and introducing yourself! I am now happily following you. xo
