In my nearly two years of posting, I have featured many of the "galeries" of Paris.  Galerie Vivienne is one of the remaining seventeen or so 19th century covered passages in Paris.  It was built in 1823 of two mansions and covered as we might find in a modern-day shopping mall.  Today, this elegant reflection of times past boasts "fashion, culture, pampering, food."


This shop was closed (Lundi) but the view from the window features both the shop items as well as the magnificent mosaic tiles of G. Facchina.  You can see a direct view of Facchina's artistry in the passage here
