This is evidenced in the fact that there is even a style of shutters named after a period of history: Victorian Shutters.

What Do Traditional Victorian Shutters Look Like?

Victorian window shutters are comprised of full panels; that means no movable slats.  While our solid double raised do differ from traditional Victorian shutters slightly, they have been designed to replicate the design and functionality. You can also get them with mid rails at a position of your choosing. This gives them extra definition and is great for lining up with the existing rails in your windows.
