19th Century English Gothic Revival Carved Pine Centre Table
The Gothic Revival movement (also referred to as Victorian Gothic or Neo-Gothic) emerged in Britain in the 1740s, and reached its height in the late-19th century. The style is characterised by such decorative flourishes as pointed arches, floral details, finials, heraldic motifs and relief carving. The movement was rooted in religious and social conservatism. Its proponents, who included Charles Barry and A.W.N. Pugin, the architects of London’s Houses of Parliament (designed in 1840), believed that the art and architecture of the English Middle Ages were authentically spiritual and inherently chivalrous, romantic and moral.
