Antique mirrors have a very unique appeal and look to them. They appear aged and distressed due to years of exposure to light or usage. While it may seem an odd design choice to some, when you’re able to see the beautiful, unique effect it emanates, you’ll fall in love with it’s decorative appeal. These antique mirrors are unlike anything out there. We take special pride in custom fabricating them ourselves because this is not a product or service that “anyone” can just do. We have learned quite a few things over the last three decades specializing in custom mirror projects. It’s gotten to the point now where fabricating antique mirrors is a process we have fun with and are skilled at. Most of the antique mirror providers you see online or advertising their products aren’t actually fabricating the products themselves. They purchase from another company and what you end up getting is a “mass-produced, non-unique” antique mirror. Why pay more money for something that you had no hand in designing? We offer a product locally that is 100% your own creation.

Antique Mirror Silvering & Restoration Services in Manhattan, NY
With age, a mirror will lose its reflectivity and shine. It’s our job to restore that mirror in a delicate manner and simply work to restore it’s luster and brilliance. We do this by a process known as “Silvering“.
In it’s most basic form, a mirror is simply a piece of glass with a silver coating protected by paint. The silver you see is not actually paint, but a the result of a chemical reaction that happens on the surface of the glass.
Our process begins by gently removing the glass from it’s antique frame. We’ll analyze the mirror and make sure this is even a possibility. The last thing we want to do is irreversible damage to your antique mirror. We’ll remove the glass, strip off all of the old paint and start cleaning as thoroughly as possible. From this point on, we’ll add a new coat of silver and wait for the desired results so that we can deliver it to you in peak appearance.
