T he Victorian plaster ceiling rose has risen to popularity during the era when Charles Dickens, Emily Brönte, Charlotte Brönte and Ferdinand de Lesseps were still building their famous works of art – David Copperfield, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, and the Suez Canal, respectively. Because that, it is not surprising to know that one of these classical individuals has stared at a Victorian plaster ceiling once or several times while thinking of how he or she can go forward with their craft.

This intricate embellishment has never gone out of style and is even seen now in regular homes all over the world. Of course, the level of complexity in terms of design of every Victorian plaster ceiling rose varies, but the style and elegance that the royals of the said era have once loved about this work of art is still intact.

And, like a real royalty, its beauty is not just on the outside but also on the inside due to the fact that it has multifunction.



Victorian Plaster Ceiling Rose helps protect ceilings from too much heat. In the olden days, since the production of electricity has not been invented yet, the Victorian people make use of gasoline lamps and candles in order to get some light on a dark night. These people have a belief that this plaster medallion prevents the soot from blackening the ceiling. If that is true or not, you can find out yourself once you have it installed on your ceiling.


Stylish Designs

The good thing about Victorian plaster ceiling rose is that it exudes a sense of sophistication so it can also be an additional adornment in your house.

Wide Array of Designs

Although a plaster rose is now used in normal homes, not all designs and shapes will look good in every home. What we mean by this is that a small Victorian plaster ceiling rose with a strong or spiky pattern is great for hallways with high ceilings and rooms with low ceilings, while a big Victorian plaster ceiling rose with very detailed pattern gives off an aura of conservativeness so it is perfect for churches, formal rooms and museums.
