Prosperity and expansion of industries gave rise to a Georgian age of manufacturing.
With consumers suddenly gaining access to a dizzying array of material things, shopping became a cultural activity.
Inspired by Grand Tour travels and expansion of trade, English potteries started producing a bonanza in blue and white china, both for home consumption and for export. Arguably the most ubiquitous pattern, Old Willow, was invented by Thomas Minton around 1790.
Other patterns, all of a blue and white theme, replicated 18C Chinese imports.
