Resilvering is commonly used for antique mirrors. These are often made from glass that has imperfections, such as air bubbles, small ripples or uneven bevelling. The glass itself is antique and can make the mirror valuable. Usually, an antique mirror is not devalued by the resilvering process, because the glass is not changed. In fact, resilvering can add to the value of antique mirrors.
