Adding vintage mercury glass Christmas ornaments to your holiday decor will help you create the look of a vintage era of days gone by. Mercury glass first became popular back in the 1850s, where it was considered to be the first form of art glass, as it was produced for its beauty rather than function. Mercury glass was formed by blowing glass with a double wall and then filling it with a liquid silver material. Today’s modern ornaments look very much like the mercury glass ornaments from long ago and give your tree and household decor a vintage and traditional look and feel. Here we look at some mercury glass ornaments that are currently available for this holiday season.
