Vintage Victorian BDSM

Share Shares 3K With the advent of photography in the Victorian era a rather unusual practice evolved. It is well known that mortality rates were high in this era due mostly to diseases and poor hygiene. When a loved one died the Victorians were presented with an opportunity to imortalise their beloved in a way that was previously impossible: Because of the high cost of photography, post-mortem photographs were, in many cases, the only photograph a family had of the deceased. In the earliest forms of post-mortem photography, coffins were seldom seen and the dead would be posed as if they were still alive. Children were posed with toys or asleep in their bed. Even special frames were cleverly used to make the corpse stand upright. For many poor children whose siblings died, they would be required to pose with their brother or sister in a macabre family portrait. It could be found in art, music, and even poetry:

I was thrilled since it was chocked full of wonderful old photos.

Victorian lives

The Philadelphia Centennial in popularized a revival of the architecture of the 17th and 18th century Europe, but not in the form of the salt box or Cape Cod cottage. Instead there were houses designed in an English picturesque transition style life the popular Italian villa or mansard styles. It was half Gothic and half classic, appearing without a plan as manor houses grew, addition by addition, in a picturesque disarray.

I realised early on in this punishment that it wasn’t going to be as intense as I’d envisaged.

Andrew Flesher Owning a character-laden Victorian home sounds dreamy until you move in and discover that the ancient antiquity runs throughout the home — including the wiring, roofing and windows. Remodeling a Victorian home is not only costly and time consuming, but before modernizing a historical home you may have to jump through the hoops of historical and preservation societies, as well.

Despite all the obstacles, the intrigue of owning an age-old Victorian home is still strong for some. We can understand why when these wonderful homes are so chock-full of character and craftsman qualities that are hard to come by in most modern homes. Aside from costly remodeling, how can we mesh modern interiors into our ancient home? Or on the flip side, how can we take our modern home and decorate it with a touch of Victorian charm.

Meshing modern design with a Victorian flair can be done — in any home. This room is a fun mix of old and new. Really it only makes sense that this style has evolved into being. Creating a modern Victorian interior can be achieved by carefully meshing the two styles together. This design is one that must be well thought out, not thrown together. This is a fun eclectic mix of old and new.

Prints became very popular in Europe from the middle of the fifteenth century, and because of their compact nature, were very suitable for erotic depictions that did not need to be permanently on display. Nudity and the revival of classical subjects were associated from very early on in history of the print, and many prints of subjects from mythological subjects were clearly in part an excuse for erotic material; the engravings of Giovanni Battista Palumba in particular.

An earthier eroticism is seen in a printing plate of for an Allegory of Copulation where a young couple are having sex, with the woman’s legs high in the air, at one end of a bench, while at the other end a huge penis, with legs and wings and a bell tied around the bottom of the glans, is climbing onto the bench.

The simple pulley arrangement enabled the lamp to be pulled down low over a table to provide a bright pool of light, or raised to illuminate the whole room.

While it’s cause for some concern, compared to a century ago, we’re living in relative comfort right now. Only back in Britain under Queen Victoria, poverty was rife and class exploitation was at a scandalous level. Some of the photographs from the time prove it So on the face of it, this surge of industry was a good thing for the working classes. Or, at least, it would have been were it not for the fact that the money rarely filtered down to the workers and they were only ever paid the very bare minimum possible.

While the working classes were generally extremely poor and rather unhealthy. They would quite often flog themselves into an early grave slaving away in a workhouse or die due industrial accidents, disease or stress.

This picture of old Hebburn was kindly sent to me by Norman Dunn who has a website of old photographs he has been collecting for many years. All pictures enlarge on this page and this picture is superb when enlarged. Even at first glance, it is clear that this picture is a superb representation of Edwardian middle class folk, with some working class folk; the key point is that all the people are dressed in the fashions of the day.

The scene suggests they are either waiting for someone special to visit, such as the King or Queen, alternatively, that they are awaiting with serious intent for bad news of some accident, such as a mining or factory disaster. Another possibility is that they are awaiting transport to take them on a trip for the day.

If the year was slightly later I might think they were seeing men off to war. Another point to be aware of is that at least some of the crowd may old fashioned, and behind the times in their dress. I’d say the photograph was taken in Spring as they all wear coats, but also fashionable Spring-like hats, which could be Easter Bonnets for Mothering Sunday.

We all have old family photos. These may be loose or in albums or they may be in the form of postcards or even fragile black and grey glass negatives. So what about dating? Photography started in but at that time was really in the hands of a few scientists, professionals or wealthy amateurs. Not many family photographs exist from that era unless they are beautiful images on a polished silver plate that looks like a mirror.

September 5, at 3: There are reports going back hundreds of years about paranormal experiences, psychic phenomena, etc. Thomas Troward was a very interesting man who had similar experiences. By what I recall reading in one of his books he had communications with the dead, saw ghosts. I have come across many people over the years in my travels who have shared experiences with me that were of the most curious substance and whose sincerity was never in doubt as they shared with me.

Some of it I have written in my journals. In this Hollywood age I am very skeptical about what people claim to have seen but there are others whose ghost experiences I believe are authentic. The literature, going way back, is chock full of psychic phenomena, ghosts, spiritualism, etc… Even Carl Jung has shared with the world his thoughts and experiences on these matters.

He talked of life after death and in his autobiography he wrote this: It was an account of the beginnings of spiritualism, and was written by a theologian. My initial doubts were quickly dissipated, for I could not help seeing that the phenomena described in the book were in principle much the same as the stories I heard again and again in the country he grew up in Switzerland since my earliest childhood. To this day I hear some of the most extremely interesting and attractive stories that people share with me.

The Secret Life of Antiques: Lockets evolved from ancient amulets. European designs for lockets appear to date to the 16th century, when small pendants were worn to conceal good luck charms, small fabric squares soaked in perfume to ward off the poor smells on public thoroughfares, painted portraits, and even, on occasion, poison. Queen Elizabeth I of England wore her locket ring daily; it contained a painted portrait of her mother, Anne Boleyn, and herself. She often gifted those in her inner circle with a jeweled locket containing her portrait.

But, I’m confused about something that is probably under my nose, so to speak.

Prints became very popular in Europe from the middle of the fifteenth century, and because of their compact nature, were very suitable for erotic depictions that did not need to be permanently on display. Nudity and the revival of classical subjects were associated from very early on in history of the print, and many prints of subjects from mythological subjects were clearly in part an excuse for erotic material; the engravings of Giovanni Battista Palumba in particular.

An earthier eroticism is seen in a printing plate of for an Allegory of Copulation where a young couple are having sex, with the woman’s legs high in the air, at one end of a bench, while at the other end a huge penis, with legs and wings and a bell tied around the bottom of the glans, is climbing onto the bench. Although the plate has been used until worn out, then re-engraved and heavily used again, none of the contemporary impressions printed, which probably ran into the hundreds, have survived.

In particular Leda and the Swan , where the god appeared as a swan and seduced the woman, was depicted very explicitly; it seems that this—rather strangely—was considered more acceptable because he appeared as a bird. Michelangelo’s Leda was a fairly large painting showing sex in progress, and one of the hundreds of illustrations to the book the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili of shows Leda and the Swan having sex on top of a triumphal car watched by a crowd.

Raimondi was subsequently imprisoned by the Pope Clement VII and all copies of the illustrations were destroyed. Raimondi based the engravings on a series of erotic paintings that Giulio Romano was doing as a commission for the Palazzo del Te in Mantua. Though the two depictions were very similar, only Raimondi was prosecuted because his engravings were capable of being seen by the public. Romano did not know of the engravings until Pietro Aretino came to see the original paintings while Romano was still working on them.

Aretino then composed sixteen explicit sonnets “both in your cunt and your behind, my prick will make me happy, and you happy and blissful” [3] [34] to go with the paintings and secured Raimondi’s release from prison. I Modi was then published a second time in , with the poems and the pictures, making this the first time erotic text and images were combined, though the papacy once more seized all the copies it could find.

Raimondi escaped prison that time, but the censorship was so strict that no complete editions of the original printings have ever been found. The text in existence is only a copy of a copy that was discovered years later.
