Antique mirror from Osborn Glass

The look of vintage old distressed mirror, off the shelf, affordable, cut-to size, installed...but... isn't old, although it provides the vintage look of old distressed mirror - sometimes call 'foxed' mirror - off the shelf, made to measure and affordable.  Antique mirror glass, installed in bathrooms and kitchens offers a striking blend of appearance and utility, applicable to modern and traditional decoration schemes.

Walls may be clad in our antique mirror - entirely or in part (a chimney breast for example), creating various effects depending on the type of mirror – colour, tint, degree of distressing and the distress effect, and the way in which larger sheets or smaller panels are arranged.

Our most popular patterns are pdy-silver and bronze-pdy which are only lightly distressed, representing lighly foxed mirror.  We also supply a full range of other glass mirror, including tinted.

We offer: a range of eleven different distressed effects in stock and on display. These vary from gentle 'foxed' mirror, with a  mild all-over speckling tarnish, to very heavily figured distressing

Bevelling, polishing, drilling and installation

Highly bespoke hand distressed mirror and gold and other metal leafed mirror made to measure

Our antiqued mirror glass is available in a variety of degrees of distress and is used in architectural and decorative settings as well as framed and un-framed mirrors.

It's used in domestic and commercial interiors - hotels, bars, cafes and restaurants -  as feature walls, splash backs, panelled mirrors, tiles, in furniture requiring an old looking mirror, mirrored table tops and splasbacks. 

As well as domestic interiors, it's popular in hotels, bars, cafes, restaurants and commercial buildings.

The surface can be sandblasted for a highly diffused, less reflective effect. The edges can be bevelled or polished, shapes may be cut, as well as cut-outs and notches.
