Antique Mirrors

Our handmade antique mirrors have a natural and artistic finish, making each piece unique. Mirror antiquing, also known as distressed mirrors, is an important part of the design repertoire, transforming time and space. We offer multiple techniques to meet varying design requests. There are two distinctly different categories of Antique Mirrors. One has a decorative appearance while the other offers a more European style or realistic old world look and feel. Within each category are many styles to meet your requirements. Additionally, we welcome custom design requests.

Our Antiqued Mirrors are in homes, restaurants, casinos, on furniture and in hotels globally. We take pride in every custom Antique Mirror created and attention to detail is always our first and foremost concern.

Unfortunately many Antique Mirrors today are NOT HAND MADE, rather imported, mass-produced and machine made, which do not have an authentic old world look. Please Beware. Also we do have antique mirror stock sheets available, if desired.

Mirror Resilvering

Our quality service will not disappoint!!!

Each Antique mirror has its one unique look and feel, such as type of bevel, etching / engraving, shape, seeds/bubbles, waves and glass color. Many are irreplaceable heirlooms which long to be restored to their original reflective brilliance and luster. In order to accomplish this we remove the original tarnished reflective coating, clean the original glass and redeposit a fresh silver layer then seal the silver to protect the reflective coating. This process will give an Antique Mirror its original clarity and reflective brilliance it originally had.

Glass Silvering

Glass silvering / mirroring is accomplished by chemically depositing a unique silver solution on glass creating a high quality reflective surface. Since our process is hand crafted, we not only deposit clear silver (Mirror) on glass, we have the ability to create an Antique Mirror as well.

Walter’s Mirror has the ability to silver any type of glass surface. Listed are just a few applications for silvering. Let your imagination be your guide.

  • Tempered Glass
  • Laminated Glass
  • Textured Glass
  • Patterned Glass
  • Colored Glass
  • Slumped and Bent Glass
  • Restoration Glass
  • Any thickness Glass can be silvered
  • Hand Blown Glass
  • Acid Washed or Sandblasted Glass
  • Glass Vases and glass Containers
  • All types of Glass can be Silvered

We can silver just about anything that will accept the silver.

The Story of Bear Glass


Work with us!!! You will be happy with our products and services!

It all started one day in 1923 when our great grandfather received a job delivering glass on the lower east side in Manhattan. He continued to learn the trade expanding his knowledge in flat glass. After 23 years of hands on experience, he finally purchased his own retail glass shop in 1946 which is still in business today. After 42 years working in the glass industry our great grandfather has retired passing on the business to his son in 1965. From this starting point we began to expand to a full service installation and distribution business until 1991 when Bear Glass was born.

Hand Beveling is just one of many services we provide.

“Bear Glass Does Everything In  Glass”

We do anything in glass!!!

IT is an age-old process which grinds away the edge of the glass to produce a chamfered or decorative finish.
Too small for the machine to bevel. For example, clock face, compact mirror, barometer.
Shapes. Machines are great but have their limitations and cannot do some shapes. Beveling gives us the flexibility to cover most shapes.
Decorative finish. Bevels do not have to be straight. There are different types of finishes, such as cross bevel, scallop bevel and rope bevel.
