Is Victorian really used in the US? I mean other than perhaps referring to a style of architecture etc. which is in turn influenced by British models? Would you refer, e.g., to Lincoln as a Victorian president?
In any case, these terms are not used in continental Europe, as far as I am aware. In Germany, the closest is the "Wilhelminismus", which refers to the reign of Emperor William II (1888-1918). The era before that is referred to as the "Gründerzeit", the founders' era, following the (re)foundation of the German Empire in 1871.
