Venetian Style Bragora Mirror
Craftsmanship and Made in Italy
Venetian Style mirrors are Arte Veneziana’s pride and joy. There are some simple tips to recognise a Venetian style mirror. The most famous are the beautiful floral engravings or rich mythological and bucolic scenes.
The most famous characters are the typical engraved curl finishings together with the depiction of Bacco, Justice or the well-know Venetian Eighteenth-century Dama and Cavaliere. Crystal colored Murano decorative flowers, leaves, twisted ropes and multicoloured glass paste rosettes embellish each Venetian mirror. The result is a unique item comparable to a work of art for craftsmanship and excellence in its execution.
Last but not least: do not worry if the mirror's decorations seem badly fixed. Our master artisans preserve the historical tradition in avoiding to fix the glass parts. In fact leaving those parts mobile and tying them with an iron wire is the correct procedure both to respect Venetian roots and above all, to avoid damage and breakage of the glass.

The Astonishing Bridge
Rialto Family Line
Rialto in the heart of Venice reminds us to the sinuous curves of its bridge
The family line Rialto takes its name by the famous ancient area of Venice. In this well known place people used to meet because of the most famous market of the Serenissima placed next to one of the four main bridges of the Grand Canal: the Rialto Bridge. And the gentle curves of the iconic Rialto Bridge inspired Arte Veneziana to name one of its mirror family line Rialto. This group is marked of a typical squared shape enriched with a signature crest on the top.
