Mercury glass, or silvered glass as it is sometimes called, can add a dose of instant glamor to any interior. An arrangement of various mercury glass vases, candlesticks, or other decorative items makes a great statement on a mantel or side table, and lends a bit of festivity to a tablescape. At The Mercantile, we carry a huge array of sophisticated home accessories, including some fabulous antiqued mercury glass pedestals.
Even though mercury glass has been around for over a hundred years, the look is still fresh and modern when done right. Simple, bold shapes like our pedestals work well with the finish, and by juxtaposing it with natural materials like floral arrangements or moss, you can create a stunning tableau. Mercury glass looks especially charming when illuminated by candlelight, so consider working some pieces into the table setting for your next dinner party.
