Today antique mirror glass is essentially a generic term covering most if not all aspects of the products created by distressing mirror glass. It originated from the effect created when the silver on old mirrors became oxidised as the paint on the back of the mirrors used to protect the silver gradually lost its sealing properties.
The blackening of the edges of the mirror glass created an interesting effect which has been developed into a range of different styles over many years, some of which try to replicate the original antique mirror glass and some which provide more contemporary effects in a more modern setting.
In recent years antiqued mirror glass has become an increasingly popular surface design material for interior designers and architects as a way of providing a more dynamic and artistic look to standard mirror glass, whether used as wall cladding, kitchen or bathroom splashbacks, kitchen work-tops, screens, furniture or in antique and contemporary frames.
Distressed mirrors are essentially mirrors where the mirror glass itself has been distressed in some way to create an effect.
There are a number of companies in the UK offering a range of different styles for distressed glass, some of which resemble old or antiqued mirror glass, and some of which have a more contemporary look like marbled or mottled.
Most distressed mirrors are made to order, with the glass being cut to the requirements before it is then silvered. The distressed mirror effect is then created using an acid which is left for a period of time before being washed off and the then painted to seal the mirror.
As the process is much more labour intensive than standard mirror glass, the costs are considerably higher, with longer lead times of typically 4-6 weeks.
Saligo Design makes and installs antique mirror tiles in a variety of different finishes. Our antique mirror glass tiles are made in either the hand finished styles or the ready made styles.
Each tile is cut and polished to a specified size of choice in order to perfectly fit an area. However the difference between the manufacturing of antique mirror tiles in our hand made range is significant in comparison to tiles manufactured in our ready made range.
Handmade antique mirror tiles are all hand silvered and then distressed in our workshop allowing control over the intensity levels of distressing and the colours. The ready-made antique mirror tiles are cut and shaped from pre-made antique mirror sheets.
The size of our antique mirror tiles are custom made to order and our design team is on hand to help with the size specification so that a multiple panel tiled layout configuration will perfectly fit your area.
