Refers to a style of imitation Gothic furniture in the 1820s and 1830s. Derived from the style of Sir Walter Scott's home Abbotsford in Roxburghshire, it is characterized by twisted columns, cusps, bulbous carving, and ecclesiastical motifs and the incorporation of wood fragments dating from the 15th and 16th centuries.
