The images included here show our antiqued mirror glass used on two recent jobs – a large residential project in Ireland and a London townhouse. The ageing has been concentrated around the edges of the mirror panels and the finishes are all done by hand, with the mirrors made to order. There are 14 finishes in our standard range alone. We also offer Verre Eglomise which is a completely different technique and involves applying metal leaf (silver, gold, palladium, etc) to the reverse of clear or colour-tinted glass, and is seen here in a framed convex shape. The Architectural print is a mixed-media piece in a frame finished at our studio. As a restorer, we have mastered different paint, lacquer and mirror effects. It was only a small step from there to developing our own distinct finishes, one of which is recreating the ageing process that naturally occurs in old mercury-backed mirror glass. We also offer framing advice with hand-finished timber or aluminium frames, rosettes, and other furniture finishes.
