Some mirrors are more valuable left alone and not to disturb the patina. The first step is to determine if it would hurt the value of the antique. If it is decided that it won't than remove the mirror from the frame and pore some muriatic acid on it to remove the silver. Take it to a glass shop and have another mirror cut to the same size. Place the new mirror behind the old and reinstall it into the frame. This a cheap way to restore ( $10 )a mirror.
