This vintage mercury glass candle stand has a classic design, featuring a fluted base and a single dish sized for a taper candle. Appreciated for its resemblance to silverware, mercury glass is created by sealing a liquid solution of silver nitrate and grape sugar between the layers of double-blown glass. A reproduction of this time-honored technique, this glass candle stand adds wonderful iridescence and mottled texture to contemporary table settings.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.
