The long Victorian period (1838-1901) spanned over an immensely prolific time in the history of art and design. It covers such great fashions as Gothic Revival, the Pre-Raphaelites, Aesthetic Movement, Expressionism, Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau. That was quite unlike any other period.
Facts of Lavish Tip — brass can be polished to a brilliant and soft gold colour using a brass polish and a cloth; for tough tarnishes use fine steel wool — it does not scratch brass, then buff with a cloth for the best results.
