Historical period styles in mosaic—

The late 19th to early 20th century was a period of architectural transition, producing a wide variety of regional and national architectural styles. These changes were driven by a desire to create houses that fit visually into their natural environment and were influenced by the vernacular design of the popular aesthetic movements during this era.

The creative versatility inherent to unglazed porcelain mosaics is evident in the way mosaic designs adapted to these popular architectural period styles.
