In the heart of Italy is Tuscany, and Tuscany’s soul is Siena. Located between the sea and the mountains, Siena is a place where cultures coexist in harmony.

The land

Between the sea and mountains are soft rolling hills. Depending on the season, there are fields of green, golden, brown or just pure white. A rich and colourful land keeps its balance between man and nature, and an economy established on agriculture and tourism.


Between nature and man is the land. Balanced between fields and woods, there are small towns suited for living in perfect harmony. A unique local culture has developed for millennia among these landscapes. In balance between tradition and modernity, every memory has been preserved but always adapts to time.


Between tradition and modernity, artisanal, artistic and industrial productions coexist and create unique and original objects. In balance between ancient techniques and modern organisation, each sector creates a unique product. In this territory we thus find fabrics, ceramics, leather, gemstones, jewellery, wrought iron, glass and mirrors.

The mirror

Glass has existed for thousands of years. And so has the mirror. However, glass mirrors have only been around for a few centuries. And as the quality of glass improved, so did the quality of the mirrors. Now that flat glass has reached quality levels nearing perfection, glass mirrors are almost perfect as well. The image reflected by a mirror is now clear, not distorted or altered. But perhaps this perfection has partly subdued the pervasive magic of reflection. The mirror no longer embodies the discovery of Narcissus or the peculiarity of Alice. The mirror is much more faithful and much less magical. It is the antique mirror that retains the appealing and subtlety hypnotic magic, with its markings and opacities created by the passing time, reflecting a profound, uncertain, fascinating and slightly mysterious image. The face we see is still our own, in its essence, but the image seems to be filtered by time, by a past that is part of our image. As if the depths of the mirror can retain our past aces together with slightly mysterious memories.

The history

The antique mirror is magical. Thanks to this intuition, Antique Mirror made the modern mirror antique, regaining that hint of magic that technical perfection had stolen. This process was made possible by playing with oxidation and through the expert use of black background. As these techniques evolved, abstract colored design was added in order to transform the mirror, from its original function as a medium of images, into a decorative element that can also be used to build or enhance environments. Ancient knowledge, together with innate culture and modern business sense, led to an aesthetically artistic activity to be taken to an advanced industrial level. Antique Mirror industrially produces multiple products that are visually similar but never identical. Experience and technique, motivated by high levels of creativity and imagination, have produced an incredibly wide range of possibilities in the use of silvered and decorated flat glass.


For more than fourty years, Antique Mirror has dedicated itself to researching and creating special products in the flat glass industry. All our sheets and mosaics are produced in the factory in Sovicille (Siena) using particular patented procedures and only artisan techniques. Each product, while similar in nature, is unique and unrepeatable. The Company distinguishes itself by attention and respect towards the environment by following an ecological set of rules and using renewable energy. Antique Mirror exports through agents and directly to retailers throughout the world.
