Mercury glass in all its glory....



First created in early 19th century Germany as an inexpensive alternative to sterling silver, mercury glass makes for some of the simplest and yet finest decorations. Their silvered glass with mirror-like finish help to create my desired look this holiday season.....Old World Christmas Charm!


Although just one piece is beautiful on its own, I love the look of grouping a collection in clusters.
Even the newest of pieces calls to mind that vintage look that I find so appealing.
