English furniture, silver, glass and ceramics have been preserved in Norwegian homes and museums in considerable quantities. Most of these objects reflect the flourishing trade between the two countries, resting on the export of Norwegian timber to Britain. English mahogany chairs, lacquered cabinets, musical grandfather clocks, Wedgwood services and Sheffield plate kettles, adorned the homes of wealthy Norwegian merchants. This book presents numerous illustrations of many of such fine objects.
