The earliest known glass objects, of the mid second millennium BC, were beads, perhaps initially created as the accidental by-products of metal-working (slags) or during the production of faience, a pre-glass vitreous material made by a process similar to glazing.
Glass products remained a luxury until the disasters that overtook the late Bronze Age civilizations seemingly brought glass-making to a halt.
By the 1800s, mirrors were made by coating a piece of glass with metallic silver and were considered important decorative pieces.
Frames could be ornately carved in wood or made of ivory, silver, or tortoiseshell.
Knowing the age of a mirror will help determine its value and whether it is a genuine antique.
If you have an old mirror with a broken frame or cloudy glass, you can have the glass resilvered to bring it back to its original condition.Newer glass is thinner and gives a whiter reflection than old glass, so test its age by holding the edge of a white card right up against the glass.If the card and the reflection appear to be the same white color, then the mirror was most likely made after 1850.Typically, antique glass has some ripples and/or bubbles in it, as well as a variety of such colors as greens, blues, and browns depending on chemical traces and how long it has been exposed to UV light.Genuine silver backing will usually feature light spots and clear areas. Even newer mirrors' backing may turn black and flake off, so that is not necessarily indicative of an antique mirror.
Uniform color, with no significant spotting or chips, increases the value of a mirror. Beveled edges are indicative of older mirrors, since grinding and polishing glass is time-consuming and expensive.
