A pretty antique mercury glass cup dating from around the mid 19th century.
This decorative cup would bring a little bit of sparkle to a rustic display or interior and looks lovely styled with simple seed heads. It has some faded lettering on one side which is no longer legible but adds to it's aged character.
The silvered glass is pretty intact across the cup although it does have some imperfections given it's age and fragility. The glass is marked towards the bottom of the cup, there are some scratches and marks and there is a surface crack towards the top of the handle. The cup is sound though and for me, the imperfections just add to it's beauty.
