The Wedgwood Society of New York
October 1995 Lecture Topic

Our speaker of the evening's lecture will discuss perfume and porcelain in the eighteenth century bedroom. Porcelain was found to be an ideal container for precious scents, oils and other fragrances in eighteenth century Europe. In a lecture rich with contemporary illustrations and literary references, many of these containers - and their contents - will be explored; from tiny and exquisite perfume bottles to boxes created specially to store scented make-up power for wigs.
