Bear Glass Can Resilver Your Mirror


 

Mirror resilvering is a vanishing art, with only a handful of people in the United States who still know how to do re-silvering. Bear Glass is one of these.  Resilvering and restoring your antique mirror is our specialty.

One of the most common practices in saving a mirror is by resilveringBear Glass can assist you with this when your mirrors are in need of restoring; antique or otherwise.

The easiest way to tell if your mirror needs resilvering is if it appears to have streaking or  dirty even after it has just been cleaned.  This is the actual breakdown of the old silver on the back of the glass.  Resilvering is used to restore the brilliance to the mirrored glass.

It is a common misinterpretation that you can buy an at home kit to repair these spots or certain areas on mirrors.  It will not look right without having the entire mirror resilvered.  Bear Glass specializes in resilvering to make sure that the finished result is perfect and stunning.

Before deciding to resilver your mirror, clean it thoroughly. Check its physical conditions for scratches, chips, cracks and pits. These imperfections are a sign of age and will become more visible due to the mirror’s new brilliance and clarity. They will not detract from its value, but rather be evidence of age or integrity of your treasured item.

If you have a mirror of sentimental value, a specialty mirror such as an antique car mirror or convex mirror, we will be more than happy to resilver them as well. If you design your own furniture and need colored glass mirrors (smoke, cobalt blue, etc…) or prefer the ‘distressed look’ to create that unique affect we can also custom make new mirrors.

The process of resilvering is very simple.  We begin by stripping the backing paint from the mirror.  We then use an acid to remove the deteriorated silver.  The remaining glass is polished and rinsed.  At this point, it is ready to be resilvered.  Using a special spray gun with several chemicals, the solution is applied.  Due to a chemical reaction, the silver then adheres to the glass.  The finished mirror is then dried and covered with a special coating.  After a final cleanup the mirror is completely refinished to perfection and is ready for pickup by the customer.

Consider Bear Glass for all of your resilvering needs.

We ship resilvered mirrors world wide.
