On the other hand, of course, extreme baroque is just busy and head spinning. Too much opulence going on in one place. Ceiling and wall murals on everything, gold plated/painted walls, cornices all up in the indoors, seems to be silly to me.
Victorian has none of the gravitas of Baroque. It's generally rather fussy.
