Here, a stunning reverse-painted glass place mat. In the 1500s, after the Spaniards settled in Peru, a core of Peruvian craftsmen began to recreate the Venetian-glass masterpieces the Spaniards brought with them. This decorative place mat brings a touch of (very) Old World glamour to the table.
Robert M. Weiss home accessories share a luminous quality--the unique glow of verre églomisé, or reverse-painted glass--an ancient art perfected during the Renaissance. Every one of these masterpieces is crafted by skilled Peruvian artisans, who proudly perpetuate this gorgeous tradition to this day.
