Mirrors are manufactured by applying a reflective coating to a suitable substrate. The most common substrate is glass. That’s because of its transparency, ease of fabrication, rigidity, hardness, and ability to take on a smooth finish. The reflective coating is typically applied to the back surface of the glass, so that the reflecting side of the coating is protected from corrosion and accidental damage. The method of making mirrors out of plate glass was invented by 16th-century Venetian glass makers on the island of Murano. They covered the back of the glass with mercury, obtaining near-perfect and undistorted reflection. For over one hundred years Venetian mirrors installed in richly decorated frames served as luxury decorations for palaces throughout Europe. The secret of the mercury process eventually arrived in London and Paris during the 17th century due to industrial espionage. French workshops succeeded in large-scale industrialization of the process, eventually making mirrors affordable to the masses, even though mercury’s toxicity remained a problem. In modern times, the mirror substrate is shaped, polished, and cleaned, and is then coated with silver or aluminum. In the Palace Mirror (Vertical), furniture designer Shah Gilani, ISFD, has captured the glory that was the Palatine Hill – a place of enchantment, evoking images of the ancient abodes of imperial rulers. Constructed of metal, the mirror frame is available in a variety of finishes and accents. With its grand scale and unique styling, the Palace Mirror (Vertical) makes an exceptional wall accent for upscale residential and hospitality interiors. Custom sizing is available.
