Mercury Glass Birds

Vintage Mercury Glass Swans and Storks {I think}.

Made in Germany.

Not as fragile as they look. I have knocked them around a bit over the years.

Estate Sale finds...

Bought over the years in twos and threes. Now there are 10. The biggest is one of my most recent purchases. All a dollar or two each.

Some of them have holes where real feathers once were. Long gone when I found them.


  1. Those are beautiful...
    I love all old things...
    Vintage Christmas, especially.
    Merry Christmas,

  10. More beautiful vintage treasures. I'm becoming a fan of mercury glass. I've picked up several ornaments in MG this year and attended a dinner party this week where the center piece was done in Mercury Glass. At each place setting was a small Mercury Glass vase filled with red carnations studded with "diamonds". Such a stunning table!

  11. Oh Joan!! These are lovely pieces. Of course I am really partial to Mercury Glass. Have a wonderful Christmas...julie
