As with all patterned and hand finished glass, the pattern is random and sometimes hard to discern from a small sample.
We offer a 150mm square sample where possible. This is larger than most companies offer as we feel it gives you a better idea to see if the mirror is right for you.
Simply return our samples and we will refund your deposit of £10.00 or credit it when you place an order.
Bigger samples are available upon request however a lead time will have to be taken into consideration.
Contact us and we will put it in the post as quickly as we can to get you started.
Toughened or tempered glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces into tension.
As a result of its safety and strength, toughened glass is used in a variety of demanding applications including retail premises where health and safety requirements are in place and splashbacks in kitchens and bathrooms.
Besides our range of antique mirror glass, we can also provide you with plain toughened mirror glass using traditional hand-silvering techniques for a high quality finish. We can also apply the same system to some of our styles before applying our hand finished antiquing procedure to make it suitable for more vulnerable surroundings.
