Victorian Era 1837-1901
Victorian Era was the period of Queen Victoria's reign, from 1837 until 1901. There was a strong religious drive for higher moral standards. Ideologically, the Victorian era witnessed resistance to the rationalism that defined the Georgian period and an increasing turn towards romanticism and even mysticism with regard to religion, social values, and arts. Victorian design is widely viewed as having indulged in a grand excess of ornament. The Victorian era is known for its interpretation and eclectic revival of historic styles mixed with the introduction of Middle-east and Asian influences. It is also described by its amazing functionality.
