Imperfectly Beautiful . . .

I'll confess; I have a real weakness for mercury glass. Pretty but surprisingly unpretentious, its worn finish lends a bit of elegance to any tabletop. With my fondness for the antique, mercury glass in its shimmering silvers, blues, pinks, and bronzes makes me think of smoky drawing rooms lit only by candlelight. If I were planning my own wedding right now, I'm sure every table would hold a few irregular, spotty, lovely vessels.
