Australian Federation 1890-1915

Australian Federation buildings are characteristically red brick, tuck pointed (bricks separated and joined by a line of white mortar) with slate roofs featuring frilled terracotta ridge capping, gargoyles and false gables. Verandahs incorporate turned timber columns, elaborate timber brackets and finials often depicting Australian motifs such as the waratah, kangaroos and kookaburras. Bay windows and leadlight or coloured glass windows are also typical.

Leadlight window, 'Abyia' Queen Anne Federation home in Pymble (Sydney) Australia Nice green for the entry and the stained glass window would look fantastic as it's east facing.

Another beautiful Federation bathroom, complete with marble wash stand and period tap ware. What a beautiful frieze and exquisite shower nook.
