A collection of vintage made in Japan putz houses with mercury glass beaded roofs and embellishments. You see these quite often but seldom without lots of broken beads and missing sections--the mercury glass was just so fragile. To the reader who asked if anyone was reproducing these today--with faux mercury plastic or resin beads instead--we haven't seen them being made--but this would make a great project!
