Mercury glass is that wonderful double-walled glass with a silvering solution captured between the closed layers. I've always been intrigued with it, especially when the glass is made to look oxidized, probably because one doesn't often see a shiny patina. If you like mercury glass too, and are thinking of collecting it, this would be the time to start — it's everywhere this year! I'm seeing lots of mercury glass in small gift shops, as well as national stores like Pottery Barn.
I hope you like my photographs from just two shopping forays. The look seems to fit the season, don't you think?
