French Style Bacco Mirror
Craftsmanship and Made in Italy
The French style mirror industry begins in 1665 when the French politician Jean-Baptiste Colbert persuaded some important Venetian masters to move to France.
That is the story behind French Style Mirrors. This style is different from the Venetian one. It is characterized by a deep grinding and a more geometric design.
A French mirror is in fact made of lots of different bevelled pieces that are close together and create an harmonious geometrical figure. A beautiful example is Donato, an iconic mirror by Arte Veneziana that is made of 412 hand bevelled pieces. The most visible difference between a Venetian and a French mirror is the total absence of hand-blown glass decorations on the former.
