Hand Silvered in the UK - Delivered Worldwide
Antique Mirror Kitchen Tiles & Splashbacks

Antique Mirror Kitchen Tiles & Splashbacks

All of our antiqued mirror and verre eglomise finishes can be made into custom sized tiles and splash backs.

Our process begins with cutting clear glass to your exact specifications, polishing the edges and making cutouts for electrical sockets or drilling holes for utility rails. The glass is the toughened to make it suitable for use behind a heat source such as a range cooker or AGA. 

We then individually hand silver and distress the toughened glass and deliver to your door. We also offer a measure and installation service for more complicated projects.

Reverse Gilded Glass Splashbacks

Reverse Gilded Glass Splashbacks

Along with our Antiqued Mirror our Verre Eglomise finishes can all be applied to toughened glass to make them suitable for use as splash backs, even behind a heat source such as an AGA. The leaves of gold, silver or copper are applied to the reverse side of the glass so the face is as easy to care for as any glass or mirror.

A New Website for Rough Old Glass

We decided it was time for an update for www.rougholdglass.co.uk 

After exhibiting at The Surface Design Show it was the perfect opportunity to photograph our complete collection, have a redesign of our website to showcase them and show you a little bit more behind the scenes at our workshop and gilding studio.

We hope the new features make ordering samples for your interior projects more straightforward. The website also allows you to search for finishes by colour or which finishes are suitable to be toughened for splash backs or table tops for example.

You can magnify the sample finish images by hovering your mouse over them or click on them to view a larger picture making it easier to visualise a finish.

Verre Eglomise doors for the Dorchester Hotel

Our Gilding Workshop was commissioned by Decca Furniture to hand paint and gild 136 glass panels which are to be used as mini bar doors in the Dorchester Hotel Suites. Each door with it's floral and willow design was hand painted by our in house artists. Fine gold details were applied behind the translucent glass paint to highlight the petals. They were then reverse gilded in silver leaf in a haphazard fashion and distressed to create a distressed mirror finish.

The Surface Design Show

The Surface Design Show
We had such a lovely response to our stand at The Surface Design Show. It was great to meet new and existing clients alike. Thanks to all who braved the tube strike to make it to see us at our first exhibition.
Our textured antiqued mirror glass finishes were certainly proving extremely popular. We're always on the lookout for new and interesting glass textures and developing new techniques to create more than just our standard hand silvered antiqued mirror.
We've already booked the same space for February 2015! Check out the Surface Design Show website for more information on the show. We hope to see you there.
