Valuable Receipts. Silver shrubbery.

Scientific American, 6.6.1863

Take a piece of clean copper wire and bend it into the form of a shrub, then lay it upon a plate of glass, over which has been poured some nitrate of silver. In a few hours afterward the copper wire will be covered with brilliant ramifications of silver. A solution of nitrate of silver, poured over a clean plate of copper, also produces a silver formation resembling leaves and branches.
