Venetian style Orsolina mirror

Craftsmanship and Made in Italy

Venetian Style mirrors are Arte Veneziana’s pride and joy. There are some easy tips to recognize a Venetian style mirror. The most famous are the beautiful floral engravings or rich mythological and bucolic sceneries.

The most famous characters are the typical engraved curls 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 multicolored glass paste rosettes embellish each Venetian mirror. The result is a unique item comparable to a work of art for craftsmanship and excellence in execution.

Last but not least: do not be afraid if a mirror seems badly fixed. Our master artisans decided to preserve the historical tradition by avoiding fixing the glass parts. In fact leaving those parts mobile and tying them with an iron wire is the perfect procedure both to respect Venetian roots and to avoid damage and breakage.

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.
