Sweet Art Nouveau clear glass pitcher with sterling silver overlay has a ground and cut in a star motif base. Very good quality glass reminds me of Hawks, although it is not signed. The silver forms wide decoration around the lip with a flower motif and winding down with an M initial in a silver cartooch in the front. A small ornate (I think) C is under the spout. Marked sterling deposit 370 around base. Glass in good shape with a small bubble on the left side (in the making)...

Mercury glass is a double walled glass where silver / mercury is fused to the inside creating a mirror effect...
