What Makes MirrorUnique Unique?
1. Handmade Craftsmanship
Everything within the MirrorUnique line is handmade. This elevates each project into a custom piece of art.
2. North American Production
Every Jockimo antique mirror is created exclusively in North America, helping ensure certain standards of quality, workmanship, and corporate practices. This is one big differentiator between Jockimo’s antique mirrors and those of many of our competitors.
3. Replication of Mirrors of Antiquity
Within our mirror creation process, we use the finest hand-silvered glass. We then manually antique the mirror with its characteristic distressing. This helps our products accurately replicate antique mirrors in quality, workmanship, and aesthetics.
A Note about Samples and the Final Product
If you request a sample of an antique mirror, please be aware these samples are taken from larger panels. By the nature of these handmade pieces, there is going to be variance not only from sample to sample but from the sample to your final ordered piece. There’s the possibility of potential variation in both color and design once you receive that larger finished product.
Every handmade antique mirror is truly a piece of art, and no single sample is going to be able to fully capture the variances in distressed appearance across the entirety of the mirror.
Please use this magnifying tool we’ve created to get a sense of how one mirror can display myriad designs and patterns.
