Mercury Glass Balls
Four Mercury Glass Balls...
We have four stunning mercury glass balls. These are antique, and have come from Mexico. They are said to have been used in shops and cafes. Shops as a way to stop theft, by being able to see all angles when looking at the glass ball, and in cafes, so waiters could see when patrons had empty coffee cups.
These are unique items, they are so beautiful and fragile. We haven't come across too many in our travels, and this is the first time to see a blue one in this size. We think they make fabulous, unique, Christmas decorations, but can also be on display all year round.
Largest mercury ball is 26cm across, and 23cm high. The blue one measures 22cm across and 20cm high, the smaller silver 18cm across and 16cm high. And the smallest green one is 8cm across and 7cm high.
