Illustrations from Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, 1861
A set of two cotton tea towels featuring illustrations from Isabella Beeton's classic book about running a household in Victorian Britain. One tea towel features a selection of breakfast and tea china, while the other depicts an array of glass tableware. Both designs are not only appropriate for the kitchen, but also offer a glimpse into the tastes of our Victorian ancestors.
Held in the collection of Cambridge University Library.
