Victorian Porch

During the Victorian era, porches became more than just an architectural detail. This San Francisco porch proves this statement. The columns, which encircle the entryway, are finished to have a rather theatrical look of Italian Portor marble. The crowns and bases are copper leafed and antiqued to imitate other copper elements surrounding this area. Once again the 19th Century craftsmanship is showcased in copper and the hand-painted floral detailing is well placed in the panels adjacent to the front doors.
