Adorably Petite Mercury Glass Cord Pendant, c1925 Item # R1751
"Mercury glass" is a term for interior-silvered double-walled glass that has been sealed to protect the mirror finish from scrapes and scratches. The quilting pattern in the glass helps to diffuse the light, and the blue tint is an attempt to better approximate the color of sunlight - much like full-spectrum bulbs today. An original P&S pull-chain socket on new black cloth-covered twisted cord is the vehicle for an awesomely petite blue-tinted double-walled glass shade (there is no mercury involved).
Note: The seal at the neck of the shade, which protects the interior mirroring of the glass, has been compromised. The result is a subtly aged and translucent deterioration in the silvering that gives the light a great industrial look
