ANTIQUE  
MERCURY
GLASS
Both the vase on the left and the
chalice above were made in Bohemia
circa 1860-90. The chalice is unusual
because of the use of applied glass
"jewels" which are rare to find.
Bohemian silvered mercury glass was
made from soda-lime glass which
contains no lead, and is relatively
more light weight when compared to
the flint lead glass of English &
American items.
