Types of Antique Mirrors

Types of mirrors are differentiated by their frames (or lack of frame) and the backing material behind the glass, as well as style and purpose. Really, each mirror is a unique combination, but here are some basic groups to give you an idea!

  • Frameless mirrors: No frame, just the reflective glass
  • Ornate-framed mirrors: Typically Victorian, Baroque, or Rococo (or combination) styling, these mirrors have very detailed frames and are often gilded or painted gold
  • Syroco mirrors: These can fall under ornate frame as well, but the material is key here, Syroco style mirrors are made out of molded wood-pulp material so they’re heavy-duty and long-lasting. (The Syroco brand started in 1890 in Syracuse, NY.)
  • Mercury glass mirrors: Most mirrors are backed with a silver reflective lining, mercury glass uses, well … mercury. They found out belatedly that mercury didn’t age as well, but on the other hand it is now its own notable style of vintage.
  • Floor or swivel mirrors: Full-length mirrors, either in a frame to be leaned against a wall or set into a swiveling stand
  • Wall mirrors: Typically rectangular, square, oval, or circular mirrors set into a range of frames designed as wall-hangers
  • Shaving mirrors: A style of mirror specifically designed to facilitate shaving, these mirrors have a ledge at the base of the mirror for setting small items on.
  • Vanity mirrors: Intended to be used on the tops of vanity tables, these mirrors can either be flat or multiple mirrors set at angles to each other.
  • Hand mirrors: Mirrors small enough to hold in your hand for up-close use.

What to Look for When Buying One

Mirrors come in a range of conditions, it’s important to know what type of condition you want.

  • Frames: check that the frames are holding together well, the joinery (if applicable) is strong still, and make sure you are comfortable with the range of visible surface damage, which can range from light scratching to chunks missing.
  • Glass: check for any cracks or chips in the surface, any smoking/ghosting of the glass itself, and also the condition of the metal backing behind the glass.
  • Backing: no one wants to get a mirror just to find out it’s almost falling out of its frame, so check the backside of the frame as well for how well the mirror glass is secured.
