Rough Old Glass was born from the combined experience of two people... a Restorer & Conservator, who worked within the National Trust & English Heritage for over a decade in the fields of carving, gilding and furniture restoration and an Upholsterer & Dealer of Antique French Chairs & Mirrors.
For years Rough Old Glass had sourced frames from France to restore, many of which had lost their original mirror plates. We developed our technique of hand silvering and distressing glass to replace the missing or broken originals.
Rough Old Glass have handled countless pieces of antique mirror glass and this level of exposure to genuine aged glass has enabled us to produce a range of hand silvered, antiqued mirror glass finishes, which portray the unique qualities of old mirror glass.
Initially marketing our reproduction antiqued mirror glass to other Dealers and Restorers we quickly realised the potential for Rough Old Glass to be used as a decorative surface finish and it now appears in many private homes, bars, restaurants and hotels nationwide.
