The Gothick style, or Gothic Revival, was an 18th century reinterpretation of medieval Gothic architecture that began in Englandcirca 1740. Unlike 16th and 17th century manifestations of the Gothic style, which was to suggest the Apostolic Succession of the Anglican Church, the 18th century version was purely decorative, was not strictly copied, and was often blended with exotic elements. Objects of typical Georgian form were applied with tracery, arches, crockets, and pinnacles. Here we share a few early 19th century Neo-Gothic pieces from the Carlton Hobbs collection.
