Mercury glass, also known as silvered glass, contains neither mercury nor silver. It's actually clear glass, mold-blown into double-walled shapes and coated on the inside with a silvering formula, which is inserted though a small hole that is then sealed with a plug.

CARE: We recommend carefully boxing and storing your ornaments when not in use. If possible, store them where they're not exposed to extreme heat or cold.
