[The
term
"ORNA^fENT",
in
its
limited
sense,
includes
sncTi
of
the
Elements
of
Decoratiou
as
are
adapted,
or
developed,
from
Natural
Foliage.
These
differ
from
the
Geometrical
elements,
inasmuch
as
they
are
organic
i.
e.
possessing
stems,
leaves,
flowers,
&c.,
while
the
latter
are
inorganic.
\Vhen
merely
drawn
on
paper,
&c.,
and
unapplied
a
foliated
element
is
considered
in
the
abstract
as
"Ornament".
When
applied
to
beautify
an
object
it
becomes
an
"Element
of
Decoration".
The
term
"DECORATION"
signifies
the
art
or
process
of
applying
the
various
Elements
to
beautify
Objects.
It
is
also
used
to
denote
the
completed
result.
Thus
the
artist,
who
is
occupied
in
the
"deco-
ration"
of
a
vase,
may
represent
ornament
upon
it;
and
the
ornament
is
then
the
"Decoration"
of
the
vase.
The
"Elements"
of
Decoration
are:
Geometrical-lines,
Ornament,
Natural-foliage,
Artificial
Objects,
Animals,
and
the
Human
Figure.
These
may
be
considered
as
the
"ingredients";
and
they
are
mixed,
and
applied,
on
various
arrangements
or
"Features",
according
to
certain
acknowledged
"recipes"
which
are
termed
"Principles".
The
"Principles"
of
Decoration
are
not
included
in
this
Hand-
book,
as
the
limits
of
it
allowonly
a
brief
notice
of
such
Elements
as
have
been
in
general
use
during
the
successive
Historic-epochs.]
Wherever
the
hand
of
man
has
produced
any
Decoration,be
it
