Venetian style Zirada 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.
