Subject: [CR]British Frame Design

Any one out there who can explain the reason many British made frames are so ornate?I am referring to the highly cutout lug details seen on many top quality British makes.To me it seems rather out of character with the British mode of design & more what I expect from French makers. Not being critical at all.Just curious as to the reasons.Opinions of the list encouraged.
