A variety of different artistic languages are categorized under the Victorian style, which is divided into three phases: the first inspired by nature, the second a Neo-Renaissance style rich in inlaid figures and the third eclectic with a strong influence from oriental elements.
THE ENDS OF THE PLATE RECALL ARABIC ARCHITECTURE WITH A VAGUELY GOTHIC FLAVOUR.
THE DECORATIVE MOTIFS ARE STYLIZED AND SINUOUS, HIGHLY INFLUENCED BY ORIENTAL CALLIGRAPHY.
EVEN THE CONTOURS OF THE HANDLE RECALL THE ARCHITECTURAL SHAPE OF THE PLATE; THE DESIGN IS ALMOST GEOMETRICAL.
From the long reign of Queen Victoria of England, a period of prosperity that saw a strong influence from the cultures of the colonial territories.
