Mercury Mirror Lamps For Sale on 1stDibs

An assortment of mercury mirror lamps is available at 1stDibs. The range of distinct mercury mirror lamps — often made from glass, mirror and mercury glass — can elevate any home. Mercury mirror lamps have long been popular, with older editions for sale from the 19th Century and newer versions made as recently as the 21st Century. There are many kinds of mercury mirror lamps to choose from, but at 1stDibs, Industrial, Mid-Century Modern and Art Deco mercury mirror lamps are of considerable interest. There have been many well-made mercury mirror lamps over the years, but those made by X-Ray Lamp Company, Zeiss Ikon and Alberto Donà are often thought to be among the most beautiful.

How Much are Mercury Mirror Lamps?

Prices for mercury mirror lamps can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, mercury mirror lamps begin at $350 and can go as high as $5,600, while the average can fetch as much as $576.

Finding the Right lighting for You

The right table lamp, outwardly sculptural chandelier or understated wall pendant can work wonders for your home. While we’re indebted to thinkers like Thomas Edison for critically important advancements in lighting and electricity, we’re still finding new ways to customize illumination to fit our personal spaces all these years later. A wide range of antique and vintage lighting can be found on 1stDibs.

Today, lighting designers like the self-taught Bec Brittain have used the flexible structure of LEDs to craft glamorous solutions by working with what is typically considered a harsh lighting source. By integrating glass and mirrors, reflection can be used to soften the glow from LEDs and warmly welcome light into any space.

Although contemporary innovators continue to impress, some of the classics can’t be beat. 

Just as gazing at the stars allows you to glimpse the universe’s past, vintage chandeliers like those designed by Gino Sarfatti and J. & L. Lobmeyr, for example, put on a similarly stunning show, each with a rich story to tell.

As dazzling as it is, the Arco lamp, on the other hand, prioritizes functionality — it’s wholly mobile, no drilling required. Designed in 1962 by architect-product designers Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, the piece takes the traditional form of a streetlamp and creates an elegant, arching floor fixture for at-home use.

There is no shortage of modernist lighting similarly prized by collectors and casual enthusiasts alike — there are Art Deco table lamps created in a universally appreciated style, the Tripod floor lamp by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Greta Magnusson Grossman's sleek and minimalist Grasshopper lamps and, of course, the wealth of mid-century experimental lighting that emerged from Italian artisans at Arredoluce, FLOS and many more are hallmarks in illumination innovation

With decades of design evolution behind it, home lighting is no longer just practical. Crystalline shaping by designers like Gabriel Scott turns every lighting apparatus into a luxury accessory. A new installation doesn’t merely showcase a space; carefully chosen ceiling lights, table lamps and floor lamps can create a mood, spotlight a favorite piece or highlight your unique personality.

The sparkle that your space has been missing is waiting for you amid the growing collection of antique, vintage and contemporary lighting for sale on 1stDibs.

Questions About Mercury Mirror Lamps
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A mercury mirror is a type of wall mirror that features mercury glass inside of a decorative frame. Mercury glass is the term for two panes of glass separated by silvering material. Early examples feature real mercury, while ones produced after the 1840s usually substitute silver nitrate. On 1stDibs, shop a range of mercury mirrors.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Mercury mirrors were made with a thicker glass layer than modern mirrors, so one way of identifying a mercury mirror is to test the thickness. Take an object like a pen or toothpick and press it against the mirror. If the object looks like it’s touching its own reflection, then the mirror is thin and not a mercury mirror. However, if the object appears separate from its reflection, the thickness indicates that it’s probably a mercury mirror. Shop a collection of antique mercury mirrors from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Mercury was used in mirrors in the form of mercury amalgam. This substance was used because of its highly reflective property when applied on a surface. Shop an array of antique mercury mirrors from top sellers around the world on 1stDibs.
