Advert For Ernest Miroy Importer Of French Goods
Medium: Print on paper
The majority of people living in the 19th century did not own their own homes but rented their houses, usually for a period of between 5 and 7 years. The landlord was responsible for the building but the tenant furnished the property in which ever way they liked. The middle classes had more disposable income in this period than ever before to spend on decorating their homes and so beautiful ornaments, clocks and candelabra like the ones featured on this advertisement were popular.
