French style Bacco mirror
Craftsmanship and Made in Italy
French style mirrors industry was born 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 Venetian one. It is characterized by a deep grinding and a more geometric design.
A French mirror in fact is made of lots of different bevelled pieces that are closed 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.

Inspired by the blue shades of the french Seine
Canaletto Family Line
The main character is blue
The family line Canaletto reminds of a romantic trip along the Seine. The most iconic element of this line of mirrors is blue like the shades of a famous river or a signature sky. And that's why Arte Veneziana decided to name one of its mirror line Canaletto. This name that means small river in Italian, fits perfectly for those blue and silvered family of mirrors.
