Round Convex Glass #900C
We have been bending and fitting antique replica convex glass (also known as bubble glass or domed glass) since the early 1970’s, and we currently stock most antique sizes and shapes along with their modern equivalents. Although convex glass is most popular with our Vintage Collection of frames, our convex bubble glass will fit any frame we make. We sell through custom frame shops or other authorized dealers in the trade. To find a dealer in your area go to our dealer locator page.
Measuring Convex Glass
Convex bubble glass is measured just like flat glass, measuring length and width directly across the glass (not around the bend of the glass). Convex glass generally has a depth of between 3/4" to 1" although deeper bends are possible.
The most popular sizes often seem unusual such as the Oval 13 1/2"x 19 5/8". Many people are concerned that these odd sizes are no longer available or will require custom bending fees.
However, we stock many of these unusual antique sizes, and most often no custom set up fees are required.
Although we stock over 50 standard sizes of convex glass, we also custom bend any size of convex bubble glass up to 22"x28". Each custom bend requires a paper tracing of the size required. The line you draw will be the line the glass is cut to. You will need to allow 3-4 weeks delivery after we receiving the tracing to produce your custom size convex glass.
- This decorative picture frame is made from Medium Densisty Fibreboard (MDF) using wood sources that meet the highest standards of environmental compliance and responsible forestry practices.
Excellent product and service!

The website was easy to navigate and I got immediate notification after I placed my order. When the glass arrived it was packed really well, it's obvious that they really know what they're doing. Perfect, clear, convex glass in excellent shape, exactly what I needed. I will be purchasing from them again and recommending as well!
Nice glass, but rough edges

I ordered the 6 inch convex glasses. It came nice and clear, distortion-free, but the edges weren't ground cleanly. I fear the lenses may crack in the rough area. At $34.00 each, the detail work could have been cleaner.
