Will Paint Remover Damage a Mirror?

I have this three paneled that has been antiqued in the 80's in red. It is ugly. I want to remove all the paint. My Mom says the remover may damage the silver on the mirror. If this is true what can be done to remove the paint. I am going to tape it with plastic and paper to protect it.

    You may have found the best solution for your mirror by the time I have read this. I had the same problem, I have used paint stripper to remove the orange backing on mirror. After rinsing the mess I applied pool acid with care. It immediately removed the silver with no damage and end resulted in a clear glass.
