Venetian masters invented a flat mirror technique where they would attach tin to a flat glass surface. TheVenitian masters also created a special reflective mixture in which gold and bronze was added. Because of this "magical" mixture all objects reflecting in the mirrors looked much more beautiful than in reality. Venice and the Veneto were famous for making their grand and extravagant Rococo mirrors, amongst the best quality and most expensive in Europe.Their interiors were very rich in style.  The cost of one Venetian mirror then was comparable to the cost of the large naval ship
