The architecture and decor from the periodwas anything but, both immensely elaborate and decorative. While perhaps conservative in values, the motto of the architects andcraftsman of the time appears to have been; "Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess." Known as "Victorian" architecture,it remains a favorite years after its heyday, and continues to delight the eye. The era, spanning the reign of Queen Victoria, isusually divided into the early (1837-1860) and late period (1860-1901). Both ran concurrent with the industrial revolution whichgave rise to a thriving middle class who could afford more consumer products. In addition, this timeframe saw the emergenceof an entrepreneurial spirit like never before, creating new manufacturing techniques. As a result, new and more elaboratehardware products entered the marketplace in abundance. The new technologies not only added more decoration to satisfy theVictorian obsession, but new manufacturing techniques also improved quality every step of the way. This resulted in an affordablearray of ornamental hardware perfectly enhancing the highly stylized architecture of homes and furnishings. Curiously, Victorianstyling incorporates elements of previous historical styles and forms. Elements of Gothic, Roman, Greek, Baroque, Renaissance,Queen Ann, Moorish, Indian, and even Japanese forms are ever present in Victorian hardware pieces. t duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost.
