Elegant mercury glass candle sticks and candle pillars can add a vintage, classic look to many table decorations. Offered in silver mercury glass as well as gold mercury glass, these beautiful candlesticks can be used for wedding decorations, holiday accents and table decor. In use for over 200 years, today, mercury glass is actually mercury-free and painted to achieve the look of the traditional method. Painted mercury glass is also known as antique silvered glass, faux mercury glass, and faux-antiqued mercury glass. This safe and more cost effective form contains no mercury but still evokes the same shimmering charm.
