"Robin Butler’s new book is a wonderful guide and compendium to the fascinating physical evidence of all this that lies around us today, still as useful (much of it) and beautiful (some of it) as ever. The objects themselves are fascinating – and increasingly valuable. The explanations and anecdotes that surround them, and sometimes the identities of their makers and their original owners, all add up to a rich and vivid chapter of our social history." Extract from foreword by Hugh Johnson
