This conglomerate term comes from joining the English historical designations Jacobean and Elizabethan. The designs using this style borrowed motifs from both phases of the English Renaissance. Distinctive gables, window, and chimneys emphasize the forms. The outer walls are often composed principally of brick combined with stone—or terra-cotta imitating stone—in the form of quoins, cornices, parapets, mullions, and door and window surrounds. Gables rise above the roofline, and bay windows project outward from the wall surfaces. Larger buildings use towers and turrets.
