This extensive catalog of Victorian woodwork includes wood doors, windows (including church windows and stained glass), grilles, gable ornaments, porch columns, staircase woodwork, china closets, and much more. Some photographs of home exterior and interior projects illustrate the best in Victorian design. Scarce; we have not seen this one before. A wonderful snapshot of wood building materials at the beginning of the 20th century.
