In theory, yes; in practice, you may find that the silver has to be a good bit thicker than can easily be deposited by the Brashear process, and vapor-deposited layers tend to have internal structure and stress that will react differently from electroplated silver.

I played with this back in the 1970s (using a laboratory evaporator and Corning 7059 glass) but saw that the silver film was much too fragile. What I would still like to try is using chromium for adhesion and copper for conductivity, and electroplating enough silver to make a Daguerrotype. (It is easier to get a mirror surface on glass than on thin copper.) But this is not something that scales down gracefully, and I doubt that anyone who doesn't already have the equipment would acquire all of it just for this purpose.
