French style Doler 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.
