Everything You Need to Know About Mercury Glass

|

If you have a fascination for stylish things, you might be head over heels for mercury glass (or silvered glass), which is so popular these days! Whether you still consider silvered glass to be a blend of glass and mercury, haven’t heard about our Mercury Glass Line, or simply need some inspiration before an event, here is everything you need in a nutshell! 

What is Mercury Glass?

Believe it or not, mercury glass, which is also known as silvered glass, contains neither mercury, nor silver. In fact, it’s a double-walled glass with a silvering formula inside. After its invention in the beginning of 19th century, it grew in popularity as a budget-friendly alternative to silver. However, since it looks “too much like mirror and too little like silver” and acquires that crumbly appearance over time, its “glory” didn’t last longer.

Nevertheless, it made a major comeback around 1900 in the form of Christmas decoration. Today, mercury glass vases, pins, candelabra, and candle holders are extremely popular with antique enthusiasts; it’s also surprising that average customers adore that distinctive molten look. If you are also head over heels for the nostalgic flair of silvered glass, you can satiate your aesthetic cravings at eFavormart!
