*Mercury glass (or silvered glass) is glass that was blown double walled, then silvered between the layers with a liquid silvering solution and sealed. Mercury was originally used to provide the reflective coating for mirrors. "Mercury" silvered glass was produced originally from around 1840 until at least 1930 in Bohemia and also manufactured in England from 1849 to 1855. The English examples were often cased with a layer of coloured glass then cut to silver as illustrated in the photograph.
