What is an aged mirror called?
Antique floor mirrors, also known as standing mirrors or dressing mirrors, didn’t really come onto the market until the 1700s when new processes made it possible to produce larger mirrors. They are tall mirrors that stand alone on the ground so you can see most or all of your body at once.
How do you seal mirror edges?
I would use a clear varnish. Varnish has very little body and would seal the edge where the glass and metalized layer are exposed. By sealing this edge moisture can not get in and start delaminating the new mirror. If you want something with more body use a silicone sealer.
