Victorian Gothic style

Victorian Gothic style

(1860–1890)
A colorful style, wherein materials of different colors and textures are juxtaposed, creating decorative bands and highlighting corners, arches, and arcades. Materials most often used are ornamental pressed bricks, terra-cotta tile, and incised carvings of foliated and geometric patterns. Openings have straight heads as well as pointed Gothic arched heads. In timber-framed buildings, the gable, porch, and eave trim are massive and strong.
