1950s Vintage Mercury Glass Diorama Indent/Candle w/Holly Tree Ornament, Made in Japan
Mercury Glass Ball with deep indents, a mercury glass candle/w pink flame and holly .
Look at the back of this ornament and you'll see it's almost transparent. I am only guessing that the mercury has deteriorated leaving the glass ball. Hang it on your tree and it is still beautiful.
The front indent is in great condition, the back is transparent and shows signs of oxidation. Some discoloration and color loss on the surface with paint loss on the holly berries. Please see photos.
2" in diameter and 2 3/4" tall to top of hanger.
Please note there is tarnish and fade to the ornaments. Candle Diorama is in good vintage condition with age appropriate signs of handling.
As always, as is.
