Image Number 2 for United States Patent #5128194.
A decorative mirror 10 is made from a transparent sheet of arcylic 12 that has a front surface 14 and a rear surface 16. Opaque colored layers 20 and 22 are deposited on a first area 18 of the rear surface 16. A reflective coating 28 is deposited on the rear surface and is visible from the front surface at a second area 26. The second area 26 and first area 18 form a border 30. A laser beam 40 forms grooves 33 on the front surface 14 aligned over the border 30 between layers 20, 22 and 28 to form a simulated mosaic piece in which the grooves 33 simulate a border between separate mosaic pieces.
