The Victorian era (1837-1901) produced a tremendous outpouring of beautifully designed objects for domestic use - from finely crafted, handmade decorative art pieces to humble, machine-made household tools. This album of Victorian objects is organized into six chapters, each devoted to a room in a typical Victorian house: the parlour, library, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and nursery. The book presents a selection of 200 examples of English and American Victoriana, from the familiar (such as the collectible painted biscuit tins) to the arcane (such as the mysterious hair receiver) with explanations of how each object fitted into everyday Victorian life.
