Victoria

Definitions

Victoria rate
(Noun) A four wheeled horse-drawn carriage of the coachman-driven and Phaeton-type. They were adapted from the George IV Phaeton for the use of ladies. Their chief advantage was that the capacious rear seat was low and the entry wide. Thus, this gracious carriage was ideal to display the ladies' costume to the best advantage in the highest of style possible.
Victorias were available in a variety of configurations though the chief types were; Panel Boot with a fixed wooden driver's box (seat) and the more light airy appearing Skeleton Boot, with it's folding driver's seat precariously perched above a very wide, usually patent-leather, dash in front of the passenger seating. In the case of the Skeleton Boot, the driver's seat could be either folded away in front of the dash or removed entirely, thus converting the Victoria into it's parent vehicle, the George IV Phaeton. Both of these forms of this formal and aristocratic vehicle required the best of horses and were usually of the best quality in make. They were exceptionally graceful in their lines and beautiful when turned out properly.
