Closing Voir tous les miroirs à Tours


The glazier, Voir tous les Miroirs,, the oldest pas-de-porte of the rue du Commerce, whose workshop is in Joué, closed after sixty years of presence.

In 1958, Abel and Ginette Bertrand, miroitiers artisans, who previously had a manufacturing company in Paris, open Venice in Touraine, rue du Commerce, Tours. "Sixty years ago, it was the era of the engraved Venice mirror. The shop was in Tours and the workshop in Joué-les-Tours. There were up to three people who worked there. With a rare specificity: that of moneyer, for antiques. There are only ten in France. This consists in depositing a thin layer of metallic silver on the glass, "explains Brigitte Hervouet, who in 1985 joined her mother-in-law in the shop, while her companion, Eric Bertrand, was at the workshop.

The new generation then changed the name of the business to Voir, all the mirrors and extended the range of glass to decorative objects and, a little later, in 2000, jewelry, including those in Murano glass (near Venice), more than fifty creators.

While pursuing his small projects at home, from building halls to bathrooms, through the kitchen, "where glass is currently very fashionable".

"There are more than industrial mirrors" Because little by little "globalization has completely changed the market. Before, there were high-end products that were passed on from generation to generation. Today is different. A page is turned, there are more than industrial mirrors.

As a result, the only artisanal mirrors in the region have no buyers. "We sold to a small independent niche business. "We are very well known in the region. Our faithful clientele was moved by the definitive closure when we started the liquidation, before the holidays

I like my street, there are many independent businesses, it is an active street. "
