The Victorian era spanned from the 1840’s to 1901. The Victorian style is typically elaborate and richly detailed. Its main characteristics are balance, proportion and elegance.
Grand residences built in the Victorian period were designed to exude affluence and express social standing through the size and detailing of the home. They were a reflection of the progress and prosperity of England’s colonies. Mouldings of the Victorian era tended to be elaborate and rich in detail. Architrave blocks were a common feature and many of the larger Victorian homes incorporated highly decorative 2 and 3-piece skirtings. Our Victorian two-piece top and bottom skirting pieces surmount to 320mm in height when used in conjunction with each other, for a real statement.
At Provans Timber and Hardware, we stock several Victorian profile skirting and architraves in Craftwood MDF, Pine FJ and Tasmanian Oak.
