The antique mirrors played the leading role in the hall interior. The manufacture of glass mirrors was a very time-consuming process, and only very wealthy people could afford to have them. The mirrors ability to reflect the light and visually expand the room was perceived in two ways – as a physical characteristic very appreciated by the decorators, and as a mystical reality duplication. The secret of making the best mirrors belonged to the Venetian craftsmen from the island of Murano. They were obliged to keep it under pain of death, but the agents of Louis XIV managed to bring a few glass blowers and their families to France. The Great King, who encouraged the national industry of luxury in every way, ordered to face the largest and the most impressive hall of the Versailles Palace with the mirrors. It was then named the Hall of Mirrors. The Turandot restaurant hall is decorated with authentic Venetian (one is German) mirrors of the XVIII century. The mirror glass becomes even more fragile over time, blurs, grows black spots from inside, so the value of well-preserved specimens is very high. The fireplace is decorated with a vintage English bronze girandole.
