Does anyone know if there is anything that can be put on the
back of the mirror when some of the original has scratched away?
Someone had suggested to me to try black paint. Thanks again!
Hello Cherie, I have had an antique mirror “resilvered” and it was
pricey. The expense is not worth it unless the mirrored piece is
irreplaceable. In my case it was an unusual shape with beveled edge,
so I opted for restoring the mirror rather than trying to get a new
one cut to fit. Here’s a website that discusses resilvering:
The reflective surface must be shiney, so black paint will not
restore the mirror. Good luck with this,
