Late English Georgian Decorative Arts

I want everyone to say, “Late English Georgian” three times fast…! Go!

Decorative art for the Late English Georgian time period consisted of silver production increasing with innovations of the Industrial Revolution. Sheffield plate (silver over copper) is introduced in the 1770’s. Soon, even middle-class homes have numerous silver objects, such as candlesticks, sconces, tea urns, teapots, and tableware. Silver design feature classical shapes, such as urns or columns, and relatively flat decoration that does not interfere with profiles. By the 1790’s, designs stray from the classical. Again the interiors of spaces are primarily the focus of decorative art and is featured on the walls, ceiling, floor and furniture most commonly.
