Imported Antique Mirror
Long ago having a mirror in your home meant that you were rich. Today, mirrors are much more common, but having an antiqued mirror in your home will still provide that elegant look that will set your decor apart from everyone else. Bear Glass is the best imported antique mirror installer in NY and supply all over the USA.
There are 3 ways to antique a silver mirror (besides leaving it in a damp location for 50 years.)
1. antique a new mirror by adding chemicals to the silver as it deposits on the glass
2. buy an existing mirror, strip the paint and partially remove the silver
3. apply silver or aluminum leaf to glass
Antiquing a new mirror - adding chemicals to the silver as it forms on the glass - offers you the widest possible range of effects - especially if you use Pouring Silver which takes 5 minutes to deposit.
The goal of Bear Glass is to create vintage glass sheets by using oxidation processes and applying particular patented procedures. We give back to the mirror the magic that is lost when mirrors are produced industrially.

Arabesque: The monolithic mirrors have a top coating that alternates from sanitized multi-colours into silver; the contrast of both changes the reflectance.
Arabesque Double-Face: The laminated mirrors are "double-face". decorated with sprinkles of transparent color, wich allows partial light to come through the silvered surface. Backlightinig can be installed, alternating the reflectance and underlining the colour of the sheet if desired.
