Cottage orné or decorated cottage, dates back to a movement of 'rustic' stylised cottages of the late 18th and early 19th century. In the modern idiom of the United Kingdom they are often referred to as chocolate box due to their frequent depiction on boxes of chocolates. These often feature well-shaped thatch roofs with ornate timberwork. In the United States the style was exemplified by the use of rustic motifs with a picturesque use of lattice/trellis, fancy scrollsaw work, and lightweight porch supports.
