In this journey through pictures and charts, the authors deal with the swift changes in taste and way of living in middle-class houses in the 19th and the 20th centuries. This volume retraces the proposal of decorative and applied art objects (glass, furniture, ceramics, in short almost all home furniture) that are of particular value or mass-produced.
However, the main topic is collecting, that represents a subtle, inexpressible and somehow overwhelming pleasure of collecting antique objects that give evidence of the time, the fashion, and the progress of the society.
