Victorian Scraps



Sort this list by

Victorian scraps first made their appearance in the 19th century. They became extremely fashionable in the 1880s and 1890s when they reached the peak of their popularity—and technical perfection. These vivid, colourful scraps captured the imagination of Victorian women who, up until this time, had had a limited choice of black and white and hand-tinted lithographs. They artfully arranged them in albums, along with greeting cards, mementos, paper lace and pressed flowers, to be passed on as keepsakes. They decorated workboxes, needle cases, furniture, screens, souvenirs and Valentine cards with delightful small images and sentimental messages.

These sheets are reproductions of some of those images.
