Brilliant Cut, Acid Etched and Gilded
Brilliant Cut is a 'V' groove ground into the surface of the glass. This is then polished back to the same quality as the glass surface. This decor is frequently associated with the bevelled edge on the same sheet of glass, creating a fancy and desirable result. The appearance change can be extremely valuable, with the only limit being creativity.
Acid Etched Glass
Acid Etched glass is typically confused with sandblasted glass. White acid looks similar; however, the acid-etched glass offers greater degrees of transparency and light diffusion. Acid etching also offers more finishes. Sandblasting glass involves the blowing and distribution of abrasive material, etching the surface.
Many pub windows and Victorian mirrors used a range of these methods in the same glass item. It could likewise take off the leading coloured layer of 'flashed' glass. This shows the clear base glass. A mask is used to stop the acid acting on the glass and, as a result, stays unblemished.

What is Acid Etching?
Acid etching is often called embossing within the profession. This involves the use of hydrofluoric acid, which will rapidly wear away the glass. This acid is made by heating fluorspar (calcium fluoride) with sulphuric acid and then condensed in water. Carl Wilhelm Scheele, a Swedish chemist, initially discovered the process in 1771.
From the 1860s, acid etching and brilliant cutting were extensively utilised for business promotion. Store fascias, advertising boards, and trades person's vans were fitted with enhanced plate glass signs. The use of glass was so widespread that signwriters quickly adopted the craft of acid etching. It became a crucial addition to their profession and is still used in contemporary designs.
