Regency Style Decoration
While the actual years of the political Regency were 1811-20, various dates are given for the Regency Style. The most prevalent dates are 1783-1830, or 1800-1830. Some historians extend the Regency Style into a late phase, 1830-37, which spans the reign of George IV’s brother and successor, King William IV.
