Antique Bevelled Mirrors add a decorative, stylish and chic touch. They are a glamorous work of art and are extremely precious nowadays. Bevelled mirrors were in the majority of antique pieces especially if there was a mirror. Bevelled mirrors were used in wardrobes, sideboards, hat stands, dressing tables, wash basin stands, mirrors and bathroom or fireplace mirrors. Some bevelled mirrors were used without a frame due to their already glamorous and classic appearance. Bevelled mirrors often didn’t have a frame and this was once considered an economical design and option. Glaziers who do bevelled mirrors and glass are ‘hard to find’.

This classic, timeless and stylish technique is undeniably one of the main reasons why antique mirrors and furniture looks so much more decorative and classy. Any item that had a bevelled mirror on it had an immediate improved quality and formidable style.
The majority of antique mirrors were bevelled. This means that each mirror had a slant at the edge of the mirror to catch the light.
If you look at antique furniture you will see bevelled edge mirrors on any shape or design. Some bevelled mirrors were more fancy than a slant cut on the edge.
Modern replicas try to promote their mirrors as bevelled but there is no comparison to an antique variety. I have never seen a contemporary bevelled mirror to the same standard and quality as an antique version.
The antique bevel acts as a prism and retracts light, you may even see rainbow reflection. The bevel also highlights the mirror and its frame and usually accentuates part or all of the furniture it is part of. Bevelled mirrors provide the WOW and GLAM factor to any furniture design, mirror or interior design.
