Victorian Ornaments and Victorian Borders

A page with fabulous Victorian ornaments and Victorian borders.

Most of these Victorian decor ornaments and borders will be in black and white, because I have found them in old books from 19th century, but there will be a few in colors as well.

When you talk about ornaments, you will often find people mean decorations, in this case Victorian drawings in decorative style, and you will find some of these here, as well as Victorian borders.

But - what you will find here in abundance will be small Victorian decor elements.
Victorian decorating graphics with animals, people, with flowers, dancing people, silhouettes, icons - all in all, lots of these Victorian graphics I have found in old books showing all these regular printed graphics from the 19th century you can use standing alone or together.

Next are  some Victorian borders. 

You will find lots of other old black and white borders on page.

 If you don't find what you are looking for here, take a look at the links below on this page to other pages here on with Victorian stuff and with borders of different kinds.

But maybe even more important is that, also down below this page, you will find lots of Victorian decorating elements you can put together making all kinds of new borders, frames and ornaments.

Victorian Borders

What could be more appropriate for a Victorian border than a crown?
After all the era is named after Queen Victoria.


        Victorian Decor Elements:

I haven't made download buttons for the next ornaments, it takes so long and I would like right now to spend the time on making new pages. If you want to save them, right click the clip art you like, and then save the one that pops up in the new tab.

For the vertical Victorian ornaments above I have used the smaller Victorian graphics you find here below.

You can save them and use them to create new and genuine borders, frames and other Victorian inspired designs.

Also below you find some beautiful and very original Victorian design elements, corner ornaments with birds, butterflies, a spider and flowers.

You can use these corner for illustrating a card, an e-mail, or any kind of message.

In time there will be more of these corners, because first of all I think they are very special, secondly because I think there will be so many ways of using them.
The only problem is that is takes me a lot of work and time to clean them for all the damage they have suffered - but I want to do it, so sooner or later you will find more.

As you might have noticed, sometimes I mix Victorian images with Art Nouveau images.

I have found all these decor elements in old books, and as these books are printed in early 20th century then there will of course be some Art Nouveau elements as well.

But actually I think the two periods, the Victorian era and the time with Art Nouveau styled art are overlapping, so there should be no problem using all these ornaments for designs for both periods.

And of course if you don't have to be precise, then you can use all these elements exactly the way you like, mix them, make them into frames or borders, color them on the computer - as long as you create the result you want.

Just remember to read on Homepage about the rules for using my material.
There are actually only two rules, and I think they are very reasonable :-)
