It appears that Christmas is coming early this year! Never before have I seen more news stories discussing early holiday shopping on television, incredible online holiday sales, or Christmas displays erected in stores well before Halloween. Since Christmas is “my holiday,” this has me absolutely energized. And, I simply can’t wait to unpack my ever-growing collection of mercury glass ornaments!
First produced in the 1840’s, mercury glass, also known as silvered glass, is a beautiful way to add sparkle and a glam accent to your tree this Christmas. Silvered glass was originally used as a reflective coating for mirrors. The revolutionary process involved blowing double walled glass which was then silvered between the layers and finally sealed.
Today’s reproduction mercury glass employs new manufacturing technology and can be distinguished from vintage versions in several ways, such as the lack of a double wall and a solid bottom. And today, the themes of mercury glass ornaments available run the gamut. Ice cream cones, Santas riding on snowmobiles, slices of pizza, and bears wearing tutus… the possibilities are endless.
One of the top sources worldwide for the highest quality mercury glass ornaments is the Christopher Radko Company. After a quarter century, the Christopher Radko Company has produced more than 15,000,000 fine European mercury glass ornaments!
Christopher Radko also produces Shiny-Brite™, a vintage-inspired line featuring recreations of uniquely American ornaments in styles first made popular in the 1940’s and 1950’s. (You may recognize some of these nostalgic shapes and colors from originals on your mother’s and even grandmother’s trees!).
Now, one lucky Susan Said… WHAT?! reader will receive a beautiful 3-piece set of mercury glass ornaments from Christopher Radko. This stunning ornament set includes one oversized and two smaller glass ornaments featuring whimsical gingerbread men and the big guy, Santa himself!
