Taking its name from Queen Victoria – Britain’s longest-ruling sovereign, the Victorian era spanned from 1837 until Victoria’s death in January 1901. This revolutionary time transformed Britain from an largely agricultural island nation into a world-leading industrial powerhouse and a vast naval empire. A time of great contrasts – from poverty and division to opulence and enlightenment, and from the heart and passion of the industrial revolution to the fanciful splendour of the Belle Époque – nothing speaks of the grandeur and strength of Britain like the Victorians. These exquisite designs perfectly capture the whimsy and atmosphere of this majestic time.
