The Won­ders of Ar­chi­tec­tural Sal­vage

Victorian Homes - - Historic Products -

The cus­tom of col­lect­ing items of ar­chi­tec­tural sal­vage for dis­play in stately homes was common dur­ing both the Vic­to­rian and Ed­war­dian pe­ri­ods. Fixtures and fit­tings from other stately homes, abbeys and churches were pop­u­lar. They dis­played stun­ning crafts­man­ship and made al­ready im­pres­sive houses look even more re­gal.

You can still pick up fas­ci­nat­ing items from sal­vage yards and an­tique deal­ers to­day. It’s a cus­tom con­tin­ued by many own­ers of Vic­to­rian and Ed­war­dian homes, who are in­ter­ested in cre­at­ing dra­matic in­te­ri­ors in their own prop­erty and im­press­ing their vis­i­tors too.
