A quick look at my table in the living room using turquoise mercury glass finials and short vases together with regular silver mercury glass. I have added two more silver trees to the mix since taking this photo.
I like using big old silverplated trays for purposes like this. The marble top table was made in 1904 for a mansion in Memphis, TN in Midtown on the corner of Union and South Parkway called the Marble House. It is now an office. I use it for a coffee table but it is actually a center table so is high like a tea table.
