Room 122d: Gothic Revival
The display on the Gothic Revival in the mid 19th century beginning in Room 122 continues here. The Gothic style which dominated architecture and decoration in the middle ages became the most popular revival style in Britain in the 19th century. The Victorians used it not just for churches but for every type of building, including banks, houses and railway stations. The characteristic Gothic motifs of pointed arches, spires and turrets were applied to domestic objects such as clocks and bread plates.
Room 122d is on Level 4 of the V&A South Kensington.
