In this category you will find various ornaments, designs and patterns which all have something in common - some kind of scroll decorative element.
The term ‘scroll’ in art means a decorative element featuring spirals or circular elements that resemble spirals. There are several types of scroll decorative elements,; for example, design patterns that resemble old scroll paper are called scrolls, ornaments may have plant-scrolls, i.e., plant forms in the shape of a spiral that represent branches on which there may be leaves or buds. In various old books we have discovered that a border type, which was popular in the early 20th century, is called ‘scroll border’, or that some types of flourishes or arabesques are called ‘scroll work’. There are various forms of this decorative element, and this vector collection was created as an attempt to group all scroll-like ornaments and patterns from our site.
