Antique Mercury glass bead garlands

Antique mercury glass beads...available Nov. 15th.
Offering lovely garlands of mercury glass in gold, silver, aqua, red, pink and multi. They are assorted in sizes. No pieces broken and each package has the size in Inches figured out for you.

Once upon a time, and a very long time ago  (mid to late 1800's and into the 1930's...handblown silver glass was made. Glass covered with a silver nitrate, double coated and turned into beads for garlands.Usually made out of the U.S.

There is no mercury in mercury glass. They are fragile, and sometimes broken. alot of times they get thrown out, not realizing how really precious and beautiful they really are.

They are very sought after for todays antique Christmas collectors. A collection on a vintage decorated tree is beautiful to say the least. 

See you this Christmas season...starting Nov. 15th 10-6
