Victorian Era Influence

Posted on September 26, 2014

The wonderful thing about folk art is the many influences that inspire the art.  Nicol Sayre is a a favorite folk artist at Bayberry Cove, and her holiday figurines and ornaments are strongly influenced by the Victorian era.  The Victorian Era of history was marked by Queen Victoria’s rule from 1837 to 1901.  It is a truly fascinating period in history that enjoyed peace, prosperity, and a truly prideful period for Britain.  During Queen Victoria’s reign, there was British expansion resulting in widespread prosperity.  This prosperity led to social and fashion finery, which was recorded in bright, emotional color.

Queen Victoria

This era of bright, colorful fashion is reflected in Nicol Sayre’s holiday figurines.  Her creations, whether Halloween ornaments or Christmas figurines, exemplify the high fashion of the Victorian period.  Her holiday figurines are adorned with impeccable fashion.  They truly have refined, elegant, and even regal look.  They make a statement of class in any holiday collection.  Many of her figurines are Queens, and they take you back to a long past era of Victorian monarchy.  The dresses these figurine Queens are wearing will fill you heart with pride for that period in history.

Bayberry Cove is privileged to bring you the artistic creations of Nicol Sayre!

Halloween Fun Facts

  • “Halloween” is short for “Hallows’ Eve” or “Hallows’ Evening,” which was the evening before All Hallows’ (sanctified or holy) Day or Hallowmas on November 1. In an effort to convert pagans, the Christian church decided that Hallowmas or All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2) should assimilate sacred pagan holidays that fell on or around October 31.
  • The word “witch” comes from the Old English wicce, meaning “wise woman.” In fact, wiccan were highly respected people at one time. According to popular belief, witches held one of their two main meetings, or sabbats, on Halloween night.
  • The owl is a popular Halloween image. In Medieval Europe, owls were thought to be witches, and to hear an owl’s call meant someone was about to die.
  • The largest pumpkin ever measured was grown by Norm Craven, who broke the world record in 1993 with a 836 lb. pumpkin.
  • Ireland is typically believed to be the birthplace of Halloween.

Collectibles vs. Antiques vs. Vintage

 

Among art enthusiasts, there is often debate about the definition of these three terms.  “Collectibles” generally stays above the fray, but the other two often get mired in discussion.

First, for the easy one.  A collectible piece or figurine just means that it was designed for people to collect.  And different folks have a different take on what a worthy collection might be.  Some only collect Halloween witches, while others prefer jolly Old St. Nick.  The variety covers the proverbial spectrum, and there is no right collection for every collector.  They’re as different as the collectors themselves.  Collectibles are not necessarily a step off in quality, but rather just a higher volume in circulation to satisfy the appetites of the world of collectors…and there are many.

“Antiques” vs. “Vintage” starts to brave a more nuanced concept, and the opinions vary quite a bit.  Antiques, according to the U.S. Customs Office is an item that is at least 100 years old.  That’s old, even in dog years!  Antiques from this era are often marked by supreme craftsmanship and detail, and this can produce very valuable items.

“Vintage,” on the other hand, is more open in terms of the era it is from.  Some feel that vintage can be as new as 20 years ago, while others maintain that the hallmark of “vintage” is only reserved for items 50 years old or older.  Those from the latter school of thought will argue that the true vintage era is from 1920 to 1965, and that these years are the only window to vintage.  No matter your opinion, we all agree that folk art, figurines, and holiday collectibles from times past are indeed very appealing, and this nostalgia is not only interesting, but good for the soul.  We hope to see you soon at Bayberry Cove.
