With figurines, silver horses and painted enamel views of landscapes, from Durham Cathedral to the dairy at Sandringham House, Fabergé immortalized Edwardian Britain. [1] The "Edwardian" style broadly encompasses the years of 1901 through to 1919. [1] Queen Victoria passed away in 1901 after a 64 year reign, marking the end of an era and the beginning of a new one when her son Edward ascended the throne, ushering in the Edwardian era. [1] Although King Edward's reign spanned the years 1901-1910, when referring to jewellery, the Edwardian Era generally means the years 1901 1915. [1]

All available literature is clear on one point, that the Edwardian Era cannot be precisely isolated to the period of King Edward VII's short reign (1901-1910). [1] Periods after Edward got non-royal names; perhaps that is an indication of how much less-highly significant the British aristocracy was after WWI. Set in the Edwardian era, and during and after the First World War. [1] Periods after Edward got non-royal names; perhaps that is an indication of how much less-highly significant the British aristocracy was after WWI. Recent assessments emphasise the great differences between the wealthy and the poor during the Edwardian era and describe the age as heralding great changes in political and social life.Robert Tressell’s popular novel The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists is a strong example of the era’s social critique. [1]

Later, the Edwardian age was viewed with irony, as a mediocre period of pleasure between the great achievements of the Victorian age, which preceded it, and the great catastrophe of the war which was to come after. [1] The war sealed the end of the period as the Edwardian way of life, with its inherent imbalance of wealth and power, became increasingly anachronistic in the eyes of a population suffering in the face of war, and exposed to elements of a new mass media which decried the injustice of class division. [1] Tiffany received a number of awards, honours and medals in his time, and is the American artist most associated with the Art Nouveau period, from which Edwardian design took a lot of inspiration. [1] Because of the development in gas and electric lighting, architects no longer needed to be considerate of soot buildup on the walls (as they did during the Victorian design period), and therefore lighter colours were used in Edwardian architecture. [1] This period refers to his reign; hence, the term Edwardian. [1] This period in an Edwardian lady's day was the one time, she could remove her corset and breathe normally! She would often entertain her friends wearing a tea gown, as she could afford to be fairly informal. [1] POSSIBLY USEFUL The term Edwardian may be taken to mean the period which encompasses the mid 1890s to the outbreak of World War 1 in 1914. [1] I have a Pinterest board devoted to the Edwardian era- -mostly ladies fashions--and another board devoted to Art Nouveau from the same period. [1] Georgian furniture inspirations occupied the forefront of Edwardian furniture -making, however, and thus the period produced a kind of neo-Georgian style, with key differences. [1] There was a headlong rush out of the Victorian period into the Edwardian era and it produced a rapid period of change in social attitudes as at any other time. [6]

While an era describes the years named after certain person(s) of note, or an achievement/movement during a time in history, it's important to remember that both the Victorian and Edwardian Era's cannot be set to a strict standard of years. [1] While Victorian and Edwardian trends were driven by the opulence of diamonds or gold, the Art Nouveau era embraced a wide-range of more semi-precious stones such as opals, moonstone and citrine. [1]

I think for me, besides Edwardian, I'd have to say World War II era, or perhaps the time between the two great wars. [1] I mean technically 1914-1919 is World War I Era clothing, but hardly anyone writes that as a description and just lumps those years together with the Edwardian years. [1] POSSIBLY USEFUL The "Edwardian era" usually includes some years before and after his reign, up to the First World War. [1] The first lot in the Fine Jewelry sale is an Edwardian diamond and platinum lavalier by Baily Banks & Boddle circa 1910.

[1] The Edwardian era received its name from the reign of King Edward VII. Although the 20th century was in full swing, the culture of Victorian times had not completely receded, and jewelry was still being designed to convey femininity and decorum. [1]

It covered the short reign of British King Edward VII after the death of Queen Victoria and before WWI. An elegant and sophisticated period of time characterized by highly detailed, feminine pieces; milgraining grew in popularity as it added a soft, graceful look to jewelry. [1] Victorian era - The Victorian era was the period of Queen Victorias reign, from 20 June 1837 until her death on 22 January 1901. [1] This period is named for the reign of Queen Victoria, who ascended to the throne in 1837 and lasts until her death in 1901. [1]

The period is often extended beyond Edward's death in 1910 to include the years up to the sinking of the RMS "Titanic" in 1912, the start of World War I in 1914, or even the end of the war in 1918. [1] If we're going with the end of Edward, then this period stops in 1910. [1] Periods after Edward got non-royal names; perhaps that is an indication of how much less-highly significant the British aristocracy was after WWI. Although warships were used by the English kings from the medieval period. [1] When Queen Elizabeth IIs reign will end, will the period of British history starting in 1952 be known as the "Elizabethan Era", in the same w. [1] Jacobean era - The Jacobean era refers to the period in English and Scottish history that coincides with the reign of James VI of Scotland, who also inherited the crown of England in 1603 as James I.

The later half of the Victorian age roughly coincided with the first part of the Belle. poque era of continental Europe, culturally there was a transition away from the rationalism of the Georgian period and toward romanticism and mysticism with regard to religion, social values, and arts. [1] Some historians extend this period, also known as Gilded Age or Belle Epoque, to 1919 because this era of opulence and social changes, mass produced abundance and new revolutionary inventions, luxury and wealth was brought to an end by the First World War. [1]

This period is also referred to as La Belle Epoque Era and was the first time platinum was introduced. [1] This is really true of any period in history with that we label an "era" because what the word is really meant to describe is the spirit of the time. [1] Although perceived as a leisurely period when women wore large hats and did not vote, the era was actually a time of prominent female writers and artists making their mark. [1] In America this time period was known as the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era.

[1] The Georgian period spanned the years of 1714 to 1837, covering the reign of four successive English Kings named George. [1]

The British historical and artistic period spanning the reign of Queen Victora (1837-1901); usually oversimplified as a period of prudery, materialism and complacency, but actually a time of stress, doubt, and change in all areas of society. [1] This period was during the reign of Queen Victoria of England, whose personal style had an influence on the jewelry of that time. [1] The Victorian Era refers to a period in England between 1837 and 1901. [1]

When Queen Victoria died she left her country with an uncertain future, her son King Edward VII was to prove to be a very different sort of monarch in what would become a very tense period for British politics. [6] The influence of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) dominated this period. [9]

The ancient history by period is based on the ancient written records, archaeological findings, and stories of bygone eras being told over the ages. [1] His name is linked with that of Inigo Jones as co-developers of the literary, the fine arts were dominated by foreign talent in the Jacobean era, as was true of the Tudor and Stuart periods in general. [1] Today we look at a female entrepreneur and someone whose name lives on in hair care to this day, Oh, and she was among the first women in the United States to become a self-made millionaire!

The volume sets out to reconsider "Edwardian’ in terms of "contemporary conceptions--the people’s sense of their own Edwardianism--and its historical afterlife’ (p. 6) a welcome and perhaps overdue review of a significant period in the development of British art and design that has often been appended to the late-Victorian period or offered as a preface to developments following the First World War. [1]

In sum, womens fashions became progressively more comfortable, practical and aesthetically pleasing during this era, such that the period from 1890 to 1914 is remembered as "la Belle Epoque" ("The Beautiful Epoch"). [1] The era itself is divided into the Romantic, Grand, and Aesthetic periods, each of which correlates with a different period in Queen Victoria's life. [1] The period between 1850 and 1870 or the mid-Victorian era has been referred to as the "Golden Years" by historians. [1] These are the changes that make any era of society special in relation to the study of the costume of a period. [10] This complex and brief period of British history is one of the most fascinating to study, it's legacy never far from us in modern day society. [6] The reign of the Tudors (1485-1603) is one of the most fascinating periods in English history. [11] During the last ten years of his reign, George III was insane, and sovereignty was exercised by the future George IV. This was the "Regency" period. [11] Domestically the long ministry of Sir Robert Walpole (1721-42), during the reigns of George I and George II, was a period of relative stability that saw the beginnings of the development of the cabinet as the chief executive organ of government. [11]

After the death of William's second son, Henry I, the country was subjected to a period of civil war that ended one year before the accession of Henry II in 1154. [11] With their elegant and perceptive turns of phrase, the French characterized the years between 1880 and 1914 as La Belle Epoque (the beautiful epoch) and Fin de siècle (a period of degeneration, but at the same time a period of hope for a new beginning), and certainly no other time has witnessed such decadence and pessimism, and optimism and hope. [9] In the Western world, this time period was both one of great social change and of a solidifying the power and luxury of the ruling elite. [9] The period of the late 18th and early 19th cent. was a time of dynamic economic change. [11] The change or reversal in taste from the Victorian eclectic styles corresponded with the historical revivals of the period, most prominently earlier Georgian and Neoclassical styles of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. [12] The before being the Victorian period and the after, World War I and all that came crashing after that. [6] Victorian age was a period of immense conservatism and mostly gender biases. [13] Since 2000 historiographical assessments emphasise the great differences between the wealthy and the poor during this period and describe the age as heralding great changes in political and social life. [12]

The overall image of the Edwardian age is that of an era of opulence, but once you scratch the surface, it was also an era of change, where the rumble of automobiles and planes, champagne and lavish ocean liners, the frenetic syncopation of ragtime, and the pomp of the aristocracy and royalty, coexisted with civil rights and independence movements, Socialism, immigration, and technological advances. [9] P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) began his writing career in this era; while his later stories are mostly set in an unspecified era between the two wars, they also have a distinctly Edwardian feeling. [1]

I also include WWI (1914-1918) into this equation, as well as the three years following Armistice (1919-1924), because, with the fall of Lloyd George and the decline of the Liberals, and the rise of Labour, I consider this to be the final break between society as the Edwardians knew it and Modern Britain.
