In this beautifully illustrated book, Rosalie Sharp looks at the society in which her collection of porcelain and pottery was produced in England in the 1800s. Her contemporary witnesses include the diarists Samuel Johnson and James Boswell, letter writers Horace Walpole and Mary Delany, and a host of other raconteurs and travellers.
