The 19th century is undoubtedly known as the era of Queen Victoria. Britain’s longest-ruling sovereign (she held the throne from 1837 until her death in January 1901). Over the course of the 19th century, the Victorian era transformed the island nation of Britain from an agricultural country into a global industrial leader and innovator. Its naval empire expanded to every corner of the world, and the development of railways and canal networks greatly improved transport at home. Huge developments in the fields of science and medicine defined the era as one of enlightenment, and the Victorian era represents a renaissance that catapulted Britain into the 20th century and beyond.
This uniquely atmospheric set of pieces are inspired by the timeless designs of 19th century playing cards. These whimsical designs perfectly capture the style and atmosphere of the Victorian era, and will look perfect seated on a 17-18 inch board.
