Finding the Right Mirrors for You

The road from early innovations in reflective glass to the alluring antique and vintage mirrors in trendy modern interiors has been a long one but we’re reminded of the journey everywhere we look.

We’ve come a great distance from the polished stone that served as mirrors in Central America thousands of years ago or the copper mirrors of Mesopotamia before that. Today’s coveted glass Venetian mirrors, which should be cleaned with a solution of white vinegar and water, were likely produced in Italy beginning in the 1500s, while antique mirrors originating during the 19th century can add the rustic farmhouse feel to your mudroom that you didn’t know you needed.

By the early 20th century, experiments with various alloys allowed for mirrors to be made inexpensively. The geometric shapes and beveled edges that characterize mirrors crafted in the Art Deco style of the 1920s can bring pizzazz to your entryway, while an ornate La Barge mirror made in the Hollywood Regency style makes a statement in any bedroom. Friedman Brothers is a particularly popular manufacturer known for decorative round and rectangular framed mirrors designed in the Rococo, Louis XVI and other styles, including dramatic wall mirrors framed in gold faux bamboo that bear the hallmarks of Asian design

Perhaps unsurprisingly, mid-century modernism continues to influence the design of contemporary mirrors. Today’s simple yet chic mantel mirror frames, often neutral in color, owe to the understated mirror designs introduced in the postwar era.

Sculptor and furniture maker Paul Evans had been making collage-style cabinets since at least the late 1950s when he designed his Patchwork mirror — part of a series that yielded expressive works of combined brass, copper and pewter — for Directional Furniture during the mid-1960s. Several books celebrating Evans’s work were published beginning in the early 2000s, as his unconventional furniture has been enjoying a moment not unlike the resurgence that the Ultrafragola mirror is seeing. Designed by the Memphis Group’s Ettore Sottsass in 1970, the Ultrafragola mirror, in all its sensuous acrylic splendor, has become somewhat of a star thanks to much-lauded appearances in shelter magazines and on social media.

On 1stDibs, we have a broad selection of antique, new and vintage mirrors and tips on how to style your contemporary mirror too.

Questions About Antique Mercury Mirrors
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A mercury mirror is a type of wall mirror that features mercury glass inside of a decorative frame. Mercury glass is the term for two panes of glass separated by silvering material. Early examples feature real mercury, while ones produced after the 1840s usually substitute silver nitrate. On 1stDibs, shop a range of mercury mirrors.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Mercury was used in mirrors in the form of mercury amalgam. This substance was used because of its highly reflective property when applied on a surface. Shop an array of antique mercury mirrors from top sellers around the world on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Mercury mirrors were made with a thicker glass layer than modern mirrors, so one way of identifying a mercury mirror is to test the thickness. Take an object like a pen or toothpick and press it against the mirror. If the object looks like it’s touching its own reflection, then the mirror is thin and not a mercury mirror. However, if the object appears separate from its reflection, the thickness indicates that it’s probably a mercury mirror. Shop a collection of antique mercury mirrors from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 19, 2021
    Mercury glass, often known as "silvered glass," is an antique decorative art glass made by glassmakers in Bohemia (now the Czech Republic), England and America from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century. These are blown glass artworks with hollow interiors, the majority of which are double-walled.
