Mercury Glass and Vintage Silver

I've said many times I love vintage silver and mercury glass--so here is a super quickie post on part of my collection.

I've picked up pieces here and there at thrift stores and yard sales over the past few years.
I've acquired so many pieces, I've had to limit any new purchases to either a Georgian Style or pieces with exceptional detail, lacy pierced work, or carving/etching.  

I tend not to care if pieces are engraved with other people's initials, sentiments, etc. I think it just adds to the province of a piece. One of my favorites is a silver champagne bucket engraved with "Congratulations Colonel Fig"! It reminds me of the Fig Newton commercial with the lady that has water pouring out of her purse!

This Mercury Glass gazing ball was a favorite find! I have used it many times for centerpieces.

I love displaying favorite collections in unexpected ways, such as using candlesticks as pedestals for creamers! I hope you have enjoyed my collection! If you have any questions about silverplate/silver, I'll be glad to help! Also, if something in a photo strikes your fancy, let me know! I'll be happy to post in detail about an item or collection, etc. Comments are always appreciated! Find me on Facebook! (Link in upper left of page).
