We begin by etching original designs onto the back of ¼ inch clear beveled glass. We then hand-silver over the etching and allow the silvering to seep into the etching itself. This special technique results in a beautiful play of light throughout the image.
We then set each finished mirror in its own ornate antique molding. We finish with a stout internal brace. Each piece, start to finish, is done entirely by hand.
There are four different kinds of mirror – strip, wide, corner, the two-sided pillar – as well as matching shelves with beveled glass (not etched). Each mirror and the shelves are available in seven antique molding options.
We have over 30 etching patterns, including botanical and wild life.
