Glossary Words

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.
