The luxury market

Box inset with miniature of George II (1683-1760)©

The early Georgian period saw a rapid growth in the luxury market, particularly in London, encouraged by the demand for new fashionable products such as European porcelain. An English version of porcelain was first created in the 1740s and small factories sprung up throughout the country, some of which are represented here. At first they relied on Chinese or German models as their patterns but they quickly adopted their own styles and decorative motifs
