Mirror surrounded by a double glass parclose white and blue, separated by a twist in gilded bronze. The mirrors are made of white glass engraved winding grounds.

Mirrors from Venice, with their decorated glass, are renowned for their unique production, which was until the development by the factory of Saint-Gobain a casting method to obtain large surfaces. Installed on the island of Murano in the 14th century, glassmakers developed over time a technical skill sets associated with the originals.
The decorative effect is provided by the delicate work of engraving and the blue color of certain parts.
The Venetians have demonstrated mastery in the field of decorative glass. "The journey of a French in Italy" written in 1765 mention the Murano glassworks. The Venetian glass is very pure and ductile when it is melted, and is more easily shaped and is more responsive than others to the requirements of the fantaisie.

This mirror incorporates those same features and is a rare testimony of the master glassmakers of the city of Doges.
