Venetian Style Colombina 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 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.

Casanova Family Line
Casanova with its intriguing decorations calls to mind one of the most famous Venetian men.
The Casanova family line is the namesake of one of the most famous Venetian men of all time, Giacomo Casanova; writer, poet and diplomat, a big name at the age of the Serenissima Republic. The sinuous and multiple lines and shapes, like the many different women Casanova had, inspired Arte Veneziana to name this family line after the famous writer. This group is marked by a typical rectangular shape enriched with a crest on the top.
