Style notes — Georgian period mainly refers to the second half of the 18th century and up to the 1820s. The style was predominantly neo-classical, that looked back at the ancient Greece and Rome and used those elements in design and decoration. Most Georgian items have straight and very clean lines and elegant repetitive floral patterns.
Facts of Lavish History is cool — prior to tea, the most popular British drinks were ale, gin and coffee. Beer Street and Gin Lane cartoons from 1751 by William Hogarth illustrate that very well.
