  • a base having front and back surfaces, which each define a plane, and a peripheral edge;

    a rim upstanding from said base around the whole of said peripheral edge; and

    a metallised layer on one of said front and back surfaces of said base to provide second or first surface reflection respectively;

    wherein said rim has a peripherally-inner wall portion extending forwardly from said base, a crest portion defining a front peripheral convex face having a radius of curvature greater than the thickness of said base, and a peripherally-outer wall portion spaced from said peripherally-inner wall portion and terminating in substantially the same plane as said back surface of said base, such that, together, the peripherally-inner wall portion, the crest portion and the peripherally-outer wall portion form a U-shape, the thickness of said rim extending substantially uniformly throughout said peripherally-inner wall portion, said crest portion and said peripherally-outer wall portion.
