 Mercury Glass

Mercury Glass is also known as silver glass and has been produced for many centuries. This mercury Mercury glassGlass is blown glass that is then silvered with a liquid silvering solution. The silvering is a chemical process that coats the glass with a reflective substance. The silvering is mottled Mercury glassand crates a mirrored effect. This gives the Glass a vintage style that creates the look of yesteryears. Even though it is still called Mercury Glass no mercury is used during the process.Mercury glass

When our range of practical and pretty silver glass is put together it creates an opulent and Mercury glasssophisticated look.

There are many different colours in this Glass range, but the main one is silver. We have an extensive range of tea lights in many shapes and sizes. Mercury Glass and tea lights are the perfect combination.  The candle light shimmers through the glass and reflects around the room so creating a warm and luxurious feel.

The Love heart symbol started to be recognised in the middle ages. The use of the heart shape and its metaphoric is

shown in early examples of manuscript and art work.  The heart symbol and its close ties with romance and love are still prominent today.  A classic example is cupid with his arrow piercing a heart. With affection and love being at its centre the love heart is full of emotion.
