Rediscovering antique mirror glass

November 19, 2011

My love of antique mirror glass was reawakened at Decorex this year where  I discovered Dominic Schuster. They have a huge range of antique glass panels with different levels of degradation and colours. The style goes from a ‘light speckle’ through to ‘heavy mercury’ which replicates the look of a mirror that is 300 years old. We are hoping to use their glass for an apartment block foyer we are designing.

The style of antique mirror glass adds a luxurious touch to your home. These fantastic giant baubles from Graham & Greene are perfect for decorating your Christmas tree this year. They could also be used as ornaments through the year. Hang them in a quiet corner of your home and subtly light them from beneath for a wonderful effect.

India Jane is another good high street option for adding some antique mirror glass to your home. This style of accessories works really well with candlelight. If you are entertaining over winter a few of these tea light holders will add some sparkle to your dining table.

From further afield you can buy antique glass light fittings from Regina Andrew. The simple style of these pendant shades allows them to be used in both traditional and contemporary interiors. They could be used as bedside lights to add glamour into the room.

Another supplier of antique mirror glass panels is Saligo Design who will also produce limited edition artworks. This bespoke panel includes the image of an Italian mountain. They also have a range of panels featuring images of foliage.

Whether you choose to install antique mirror glass panels or just buy a few tea light holders have fun with antique mirror glass.

    I absolutely love this look. One of the products we make is Antique Mirror. Creating an antique mirror effect is an inexpensive way to revamp a flea market find, or add a new layer of interest and depth to an ordinary wall mirror.

    The first step in this process is to determine where you want to hang your new mirror. Be sure to clear the area first, for instance, clear off the top of a mantle if that is where the mirror is going. Clear the fireplace mantle or dresser top. And if the space is tight, you might consider moving the dresser out of the way entirely for the duration of the job. Measure and then mark the wall at the hanging location.,
