"The classic Victorian illustrated pattern catalogue of English and foreign ornamental tableware, glassware, chandeliers, mirrors, flower stands, lamps, stained glass, sterling silver and electro-plated goods. This classic Victorian illustrated household catalogue is a cornucopia of nineteenth-century material splendor: a richly-coloured parade of the middle-class lifestyle of an era when houses had maids and cooks, and the new gas lighting fell from crystal chandeliers upon cut glass decanters of old port, engraved silver tea-services, and mahogany tables well laid with the finest china."
This profusely illustrated catalogue offers a fascinating insight into everyday Victorian life. Burgundy hardcover, gold foil stamped on the spine. 283 pages. Publisher: Wordsworth Editions (1990). Dimensions: 10 3/4" x 14 3/4". This pre-owned book is in pristine condition with tight spine, crisp, clean pages. Dust cover has minor wear on edges. Smoke-free home.
