Mercury, or silvered, glass, is a decorative element that is produced by placing metallic liquid between two plates of blown glass. It began in Germany as an inexpensive alternative to creating attractive candlesticks, vases, bowls, and other decorative items.
Though called mercury glass, it actually does not contain mercury but is usually created with a silver nitrate solution. In the beginning, people attempted using mercury but stopped due to its toxic nature and high cost.
Similar to mercury glass, Wisteria carries many products that use a method of creating antiqued glass, which differs from mercury glass only in the process it is made. Antiqued glass only uses one sheet of glass with a painted silvered finish on the inside. It is a great way to get that antiqued look in your home and looks great all year round.
