How are our silver mirrors colored?
A beautiful silver mirror frame is colored with silver leaf metal. Because this is done with thin sheets, you can see the craftsmanship, also it gives the silver mirror frame extra character and value.
Bright silver is the pure silver leaf without any processing, it looks like stainless steel color.
Antique silver is silver leaf metal, patinated afterwards.
The patination can be done with a bronze tone or a black patina.
Silver is hallmarked with silver leaf metal and finished with a champagne colored lacquer. This best matches the original silver color, as real silver is always mixed with 20% copper (3rd grade). This gives real silver always a slightly yellowish glow.
The silver differences
Per product and supplier, the silver color can differ.
At barokspiegel.nl all mirrors are made and colored in Europe in the authentic manner with silver leaf batter metal!
What are the differences in the color silver with the competitor?
Cheap mirrors will be silver sprayed, with saw frames the silver is often a veneer layer.
Authentic mirror frames are always colored with silver leaf battle metal.
Except when it comes from the far east (China), then it's mass production and that has nothing to do with authentic anymore either.
Why choose a silver mirror?
The color silver is neutral and you can easily combine it with anything.
