Victorian Christmas angels are one of the biggest gifts that the Victorians brought us to brighten up our own holidays. Victorians loved using frilly angels in decorations. The upper-class Victorian housewife would decorate for every holiday, including Valentine’s Day and especially Christmas. The Victorian Christmas angels would be used used as Christmas tree ornaments, as Christmas tree toppers and in figurines.
Angels were used in Victorian times in many different ways, and you would see them used in furniture and you’ll find angels with harps and veils in many different places in a Victorian home.
In the Victorian era, a concept of “the angel of the house” was widely promulgated, referring to a concept of a woman submitting herself willingly to her marriage partner.
However, not wishing to delve into antiquated ideas of male-female relations, which would be poorly received in the modern era, I have decided instead to feature Victorian style artwork pertaining to angels, which, in turn, would be appropriate in Christmas adornments. Hanging ornaments, figurines, and patterns follow:
