Merry and bright, our vintage mercury glass ornament will add an extra little shine to your Christmas tree this year.

This early embossed ornament is from the 1940s, when many of these ornaments were handblown. The hand painted figure is that of an angel or baby, tucked into bed. The very thin glass shows loss of mercury coating on the back.

Add this sweet baby ornament to your very own winter wonderland. Still bright and shiny, this treasure will become a family heirloom for years to come.
