Non-glass mirrors can be made using any clear substrate other than glass the most common being acrylic. These are generally less expensive than glass and some very cheap versions are nothing more than a polished metal surface. Here is a review of some of the mirrors offered by a selection of American furniture manufacturers.
At one time mirrors were made using a backing of mercury but these are no longer manufactured. They can also be made using silver precipitated from a silver nitrate solution. However today most mirrors are made by evaporating aluminum onto glass although other coats are applied to improve adhesion and durability. For example a black backing can be applied to improve opacity and reflectivity.
