Do you Resilver Mirrors?
Yes, we resilver mirrors - and we also sell the
chemicals and supplies so you can do it
yourself, if you want to.
In addition to furniture mirrors, we also resilver
antique automobile mirrors. We've resilvered
theatre spotlight lenses, sailboat search light
lenses, railroad signal lenses, archery sight
mirrors, and we've even done laboratory and
telescope mirrors. So, if you have a mirror that
needs to be resilvered - or a piece of glass that
needs to become a new mirror - we can probably
do it for you.
Since the 1970's, when we developed our own
resilvering chemicals and processes, we've been
resilvering old antique mirrors, and making new
ones. As a complete service antique restoration
shop, we pride ourselves in being able to offer
this unique service to our customers. We are the
exclusive source for the resilvering products we
make which were sold by Minuteman, Inc.
Would you like to 'do-it-yourself?' Do you have the
time and place to dedicate to setting up shop and
learning a new skill? If so, then you might want to
buy our Mirror Resilvering Starter Kit, or ABC-X
Resilvering Chemicals. Not sure? Take a look at
our Resilvering 'How-To' DVD program.
We're here to serve you. If you have questions, or
would like more information, click the 'Ask a
Question' button and email us. If you'd rather talk
to us directly on the phone, the number is

Central Time, Tuesday through Friday.

How much does it cost?
Commodity Market Silver metal prices have
increased dramatically, so we're forced to
adjust our prices for resilvering, too.

Remember, when we resilver your mirror,
we replate with a heavy coating of pure
genuine silver metal. Unlike many new
mirrors today,we do not us chrome or
aluminum on any mirrors we resilver. So,
when we say we 'resilver' we really mean it!
Can we ship our mirror to you via UPS,
USPS or FedEx for resilvering?
Yes! Many folks ship us their mirrors for
resilvering. If you would like to send us your
mirror, please contact us for packing
instructions before you ship. Resilvering
prices on our list do not include shipping.
Will My Mirror Come Out Perfect?
We bond new silver to your old glass.
Although we re-polish by hand, and make
the mirror surface as perfect as possible,
expect to be able to see some
imperfections in a resilvered mirror. The
quality of your resilvered mirror is directly
related to the quality and condition of the
BACK side of your glass.
The better the glass is before resilvering,
the better or more perfect you can expect
your resilvered mirror to be. Old mirrors,
especially old mirrors which have gotten
into pretty bad condition, can be expected
to show some scars and marks of age.
This is what makes a resilvered mirror an
antique with character.
Usually, the imperfections are not
noticeable unless you are trying to look for
them. Viewed head-on, they are almost
never seen. In a glare angle, they show
