Antique glass repair vanity mirrorAugust 19th, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Beveled Glass
The glass in an antique vanity mirror was broken. The sterling silver frame was in good shape only the mirror was broken. The way I made the new mirror is called blind beveling. I bevel a piece of mrirror with out seeing the stone . Old mirrors were beveled and then silvered . I don’t resilver mirrors so I have to bevel it blind. It takes some practice you have to watch the water coming of the stone and it will let you know if its going well.
I took off the retaining ring and removed the broken mirror.
Using the old mirror for a pattern I made a new beveled mirror. Its ready to be installed.
