Rescuing a Broken Mirror?

Rescuing a Broken Mirror?

Q: A Murano glass mirror my wife and I picked up in Venice has undergone a series of trials and tribulations, and unfortunately the mirror itself has a large crack running down the middle. The Murano glass "frame" that borders the mirror is what we want to salvage, but in order to fix a previous problem I pretty much permanently affixed it to the mirror using epoxy. Do I just glue another mirror onto the cracked one? Or is something more inventive called for?

Editor: Oh Matt, your poor mirror! We definitely think it is time to consult a professional on this one. If your mirror had a wooden frame, you would have lots of DIY possibiliites, but a glass frame certainly complicates matters. Add in the epoxy, and we're afraid further efforts might make the situation even worse.

Do any readers have advice for Matt? Or experience with local glass experts to share?
