Venetian Style Dandolo 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.

Doge Family line
An Iconic and Symbolic Headgear
The Doge family line takes its name from the most famous character in Venice. The Serenissima Repubblica was very famous for its legal structure. The doge elected by the Venetian aristocracy was the chief magistrate and leader of the Republic of Venice between 726 and 1797.
Arte Veneziana named Doge one of its well known mirror groups because the crest of each mirror recalls the typical doge's headgear.
