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 Did you know? Silver and silver plated tea and coffee pots get very hot when full, that's why most of them have wooden or plastic handles or small bone rings for heat insulation.
