BOHEMIAN COMPOTE

Made of soda-lime glass
and blown-molded, the
interior of the bowl is
"gold-washed" which
was done during the
annealing, or cooling
phase. The outside is
decorated in a pattern
typical of the 1870's by
an etching technique
consisting of granulate
application.
Collecting Mercury Glass

Mercury glass can be found in antique
shops, at antique shows, and of course,
through a search of many Internet auction sites such as
ebay.

TIP: read descriptions carefully! The most highly
collected pieces of mercury glass retain their original
seal and show  no loss of the inner silver coating.
