Pink mirrored glass has been hard to find since the 1950s.

After the 1950s, however, the original practice for creating pink mirror was exposed as dangerous and other materials came in to fashion.
Below, I show you where you can find pink glass mirror today for any application — wall mirrors, custom sized pink mirror for a backsplash, or a custom piece for furniture…Ready? Let’s go!

Research / Frequent Questions
What is pink glass?
Colored glass is made by mixing chemicals into the glass during the molding process.
Pink glass, for example, is produced through the introduction of a chemical called selenium. This chemical causes the glass to turn red. By using larger or smaller amounts, glassmakers can create glass in various red shades.
This process is somewhat expensive in comparison to the process used to create other colors. That’s partly why pink depression glass is so valuable.
what color of depression glass is most valuable?
Certain colors of depression class are more valuable than others. Cobalt blue and green, for example, are among the rarest types of depression glass. So, they’re valued higher and collectors are usually willing to pay more for them.
It’s pink, however, that takes the title of Most Valuable Color.
When it comes to depression glass, dealers and collectors are willing to pay far more for pink pieces than any other color. A simple set of plates goes for as much as $250!

How is This Pink Mirror Available?
As I mentioned above, the 1920s method for creating vintage pink glass was proved toxic and very dangerous in the 1950s, which led to a halt in the production of colorful mirror.
Today, non-toxic, artisanal methods for creating pink mirror and other colored mirror glass do exist, though they require much skill and special equipment. The mirror mentioned in this article uses the latter, non-toxic method for creating pink mirror.
