Venetian mirrors >> history >>

By the start of the seventeen century Venetian glass mirrors covered a wide range of forms and designs. There was Venetian mirrors covered with delicate enameling, jeweled glass with gilts and gleams of silver, clear glass latticed with opaque threads, glass of soft colors, the so-called ice glass with its shimmering, shattered appearance obtained by dipping the still-hot glass in cold water. The goblets Venetian masters made for the mirror were daringly thin and fragile. Glass as the most pliable of materials had been stretched to new limits by Venetian glassmakers, as it would be time and time again, and as it continues to be today. Venetian mirrors through the Renaissance and beyond were the finest mirrors made in all the world, and most of the world - Europe, especially - was envious.
