Antique mirror glass is a broad category that can include a number of different aesthetic styles and choices. The manufacturing process of antique glass no longer requires the passage of time or the use of toxic or environmentally detrimental materials. The goal of antique treatments is to create a weathered, aged look for the glass while still maintaining the structural and functional integrity of the glass.
Did You Know?
The antique mirror look is achieved through the application of a spray backing during the manufacturing process which creates the appearance of weathering and age. Paints and chemical treatments can also be applied directly to the surface of the glass to achieve the dark spots, chips, and divots that are a hallmark of time-worn mirrors.
