Custom Mirror Silvering
Our custom patinated mirrors are fabricated in-house by our master craftsmen. Each mirror finish has its own formula that creates a reaction, resulting in a simulation of the natural deterioration of the silver.
Adjusting the formulas can make subtle changes to the design. However, it is important to understand that our custom silvered mirrors are handmade and one-of-a-kind.

Decorative Mirrors with Custom Finished Frames
Along with decorative mirrors, we design and create custom frames.
Using wood, welded metal, or acrylic frames in combination with glass, beveling, and silvering finishes allows for a multitude of options.
Your design could include a revival trumeau or multi-panel architectural mirror. The silvering can be clear, antique, distressed, or gilded on textured, tinted, low iron, convex, or art glass. Make an appointment to visit our showroom to review a selection of potential options.
Custom samples can be fabricated upon request.
