Glossary Words

anthemion

A palmette motif in the form of a stylised honeysuckle, found on classical Greek buildings such as the Erechtheum, in Athens, and often used as part of neo-classical decoration.

Edwardian

Of the reign of King Edward VII (1901-1910). Following on from the highly-ornamented Victorian age, the Edwardians' style was simpler, with weighty, classical lines, and decorous floral patterns. It celebrated the new electric era but they still continued to use candles, oil and gas in different parts of the house.
