. Does the bevel on a mirror add much to the cost?
Not as much as you may think. Straight bevels are cut and polished using current technology at a modest cost. Most shaped beveled mirrors require much more labor because they are cut and polished one at a time by hand. The wider the bevel, the more costly it is to produce. Uttermost mirror bevels are wider than most, and we consider the enhanced look and value well worth any additional cost.
What is the difference between a carved wood mirror frame and a moulded polyurethane frame?
Mostly the price. With today’s technology, a solid core polyurethane frame feels and looks like wood. It lasts just as long as wood and absorbs a finish just like wood. Most Uttermost frames are wood except for the more ornate frames which would have to be hand carved if crafted in wood. On these ornate frames, we use the latest technology in making our polyurethane frames as well as the richest hand finishes possible. The other type of frame construction we use frequently is metal, either wrought iron or hand forged steel.
