Question 1)
What was a curious or unprecedented outcome of mass production during the Victorian era? (Hint: there are 2 correct answers to this question; you must select both to earn full marks.)

  • Popular taste was influenced by content broadcast over shortwave radio, an emerging technology of the time.
  • In the last two decades of the 19th century, the production of wooden household goods surpassed metal and ceramic goods combined.
  • Despite the modernization of production techniques, a lot of vernacular design still looked a lot like the handcrafted objects of the past.
  • It was poor design, poor salesmanship and consumer demand for low-price goods that flooded the market with “bad” or shoddy goods, not mechanization itself.

Question 2)
What does the term “form follows function” mean? (Choose the best answer.)

  • The form of an object is an indication of how it was created (or used).
  • It isn’t necessarily important how an object looks; what matters is how it is used.
  • It is important to understand how an object is used so we can classify it and give it value.


Question 3)
What was the primary reason for the range of “revival” styles in furniture and household goods of the Victorian period?

  • The appropriation of Classical styles made things look “classy”.
  • Herter Brothers were popular and this was the style of furniture they sold.
  • Applying a historic style created a commercial familiar language to appeal to the tastes and values of various many consumers.

Question 4)
What was the primary reason that manufacturers adopted logos for their products?
Every product needs a logo for marketing purposes.

  • It was necessary to mark boxes and crates on ships for taxation purposes.
  • Since goods were manufactured and then shipped, companies needed a way to mark their product for merchants distributing their product locally.

Question 5)
How did companies in the 19th century reconnect consumers to their mass-produced goods? Choose the best answer.

  • They advertised the products using long narratives to describe the product, how to use it, and why you needed it.
  • They used the likenesses of the company owners or product inventors on the product packaging.
  • They used fictional characters as product branding to create an emotional attachment between the consumer and the product.
  • All of the above.
