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.
We shall be exhibiting at the Independent Hotel Show this October.
The show is the 'UK's largest, most comprehensive and best established business event in support of the luxury, boutique and independent hotel sector.'
We're already busy planning the stand and looking forward to meeting clients, new and existing at Olympia. We'll be showing panelled antiqued mirrored walls, framed and frameless mirror collections and a new range of mirrored cube tables.
See you there - Stand number 83.
A collection of over 100 original antique mirror frames, sourced by us from the UK and the Continent; sensitively restored in our North Devon Workshop.
18th, 19th & 20th Century examples, some retaining their original mirror glass and others having Rough Old Glass antiqued mirror to complement each frame.
Available for FREE Nationwide Delivery - TRADE & RETAIL enquiries welcome.
Worldwide delivery is also available - please enquire for a price.
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.
Our standard samples measure approximately 150 x 200mm.
They are hand silvered on 4mm float glass with as cut edges and mounted onto 2mm backboards.
Up to two samples are supplied free of charge to Trade clients - using the code 'TRADE' at the checkout. We do require proof of your design, construction or industry related trade status in order to provide free samples.
Further samples or for private clients can be purchased and returned for a refund, if received in perfect condition, within 30 days of receipt.
Inspired by early 20th Century panelled Bistro Mirrors, we supply decorative cast brass studs which can be applied where each panel meets. Available in antiqued brass patina or gilded in gold or silver leaf for any of our bespoke panelled antiqued mirrors.
Taxidermy artist Paul Broomfield creates his magical assemblage boxes lined with original 18th & 19th century antique mirror and Rough Old Glass finishes. Pauls work incorporates vintage and found objects, curios and, more often than not, antique taxidermy which is partially gilded using traditional techniques.
Unique decorative art pieces - For commissions visit his website www.paulbroomfield.co.uk
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.

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.
