Venetian Cast Glass Patterns image

Venetian Cast Glass Patterns

The textural quality of Venetian Cast Glass is amazing. While a picture is worth a thousand words, seeing it in person, the way the lights and patterns change as you move from side to side, will make you fall in love with this glass. However, if we must, here are just a few words about each pattern.

Venetian Cast 3/8" and 1/2" Glass
  • Cottage Door - A diamond pattern wooden door
  • Creek- A flowing vertical river of texture
  • Lava - A heavy wide vertical flow
  • Lodge - Vertical wooden planks
  • Marine - An under sea scene with fish and plants
  • Meander - A flowing river pattern moving down and across the door
  • Palm - A tropical scene with palm trees and plants
  • Rock Wall - Goes great with rock
  • Safari - A thick striped pattern reminiscent of a zebra or tiger
  • Scuba - Optically clear bubbles flowing upward make this a dynamic pattern
  • Sensu - Like a series of large Japanese fans
  • Storm - Our most popular pattern, with storm currents swirling throughout
  • Waterfall - Water flows down between the rocks on each side of this pattern
Custom Patterns

Cardinal Mirror Frame

Mirror Frame image

Mirror Frame

Three decorative frame sections are stocked in eight finishes: Chrome, Gold, Nickel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Satin Chrome, White, Antique and Marble. Available in a kit or complete and assembled. These are custom frames, fabricated to your specified dimensions.

The Advantages Are Tremendous
Separate yourself from the competition by offering a custom, upscale, elegant enhancement to the bathroom, never before available at these competitive prices.

Easy to Install
The framed mirrors are even easier to install than hanging a mirror with J-bar and mastic. Simply screw the hanging bracket on the wall and hang the mirror. No fuss, no mess, and no waiting for mastic to warm up in cold climates.

Each unit comes with four corner brackets, a hanging rail with screws and anchors, glass blocks, and eight retainer blocks. We recommend that you secure the hanging rail directly to studs for the most secure installation. The anchors are used when you cannot hit a stud.
