Victorian décor items for your Queen Anne, Eastlake, or Richardsonian Romanesque building can be difficult to locate. This is especially true if you are looking for practical things like Victorian door knobs, reproduction Victorian lights, doorbell buttons, vent covers, cold air returns, Victorian house numbers, or an address plaque
The Victorian Homes Connection has extensive collections of these, as well as Victorian light switch plates, Victorian hardware including knobs, pulls, and hinges, plus some very stylish traditional Victorian rugs.
Something often seen in Victorian structures is applied Victorian moulding including corbels, capitals, columns, and ornaments. Cast resin pieces based on actual wood carved pieces are an affordable way to recreate that look, and are much easier to work with. Furthermore, thin moldings can conform well to curved surfaces. Whether on a fireplace mantel or a wainscoting in the dining room, well-chosen cast ornament creates a high style look quickly.
But for the Victorian homeowner, perhaps the most useful item found at The Victorian Homes Connection is the high quality hexagon porcelain tile that is completely rectified. Tiles that are totally flat across the top and not rounded at the edges were commonly used in the Victorian era, and are referred to as rectified. In addition to hexagon, there are also square and penny round shapes from which to choose.
