Luxury and Pleasure in Eighteenth-Century Britain

The fine mahogany secretaire with its secret drawers, the lacquered tea table, Chinese and Japanese porcelain tea ware. These fine luxury goods now seem to belong to the English country house or the exclusive antique shop. But what do they tell us about their eighteenth-century consumers? Maxine Berg explores not only how luxury consumer goods transformed the homes of Britain's urban middle classes but how their very production fostered and sustained the world's first industrial revolution.
