Style note — products made in the traditional Victorian style are often recognisable because of their lavish decoration. The design mixes various sources of inspiration, but the prevalent decorative features are rich floral ornaments, scrolls and foliage, often applied all over the items.
Facts of Lavish History is cool — prior to tea, the most popular British drinks were ale, gin and coffee. Beer Street and Gin Lane cartoons from 1751 by William Hogarth illustrate that very well.
