An easy way to bring Venetian style into a small bathroom is with a Murano mirror. Murano glass is a special style of glass that is handmade and often has a quilted or mosaic appearance. These decorative glass pieces are made by Murano master craftsmen or highly skilled glass artisans in Murano, Italy, who use vibrant colors. All Murano pieces are hand-blown glass. Many of the hand tools used by the glass masters date back to the Middle Ages. Murano glass includes everything from vases and chandeliers to Christmas ornaments and glass beads. A Murano mirror is a real eye-catcher in the bathroom.

But how can you tell if the Murano glass is real? The best way to find a genuine Murano mirror is to visit the island of Murano in Venice and buy directly from the manufacturer. Since this is not possible for many people, you can view Murano mirrors online at While each Murano glass piece is unique because it is handmade, some features indicate that it is genuine.

Because of the way the colors are layered, there will likely be small imperfections, such as air bubbles. No lead is used in Murano glass, so even the clear glass is never completely clear. In hand blown glass, there is sometimes a pontil mark or scar of some sort where the rod has been separated from the glass. You can find it on the bottom of the glass and feel that it is not completely smooth.
