Description: This major study features important pieces of furniture made under British rule in India and drawn from the magnificent collections of the V&A and Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. Not only does it provide full catalogue details for each piece, it also includes a wealth of information about British life in India.

Four substantial chapters, illustrated with a range of rarely seen pictures, cover subjects such as domestic life, income and expenses, taste and attitudes toward things Indian, furniture and its role in the interior, sources, materials, and makers. The catalogue is arranged by region and includes a glossary of terms and native materials. This is the first book to cover this fascinating subject in depth, ensuring that it will become the definitive work of reference for experts, collectors, and those interested in the material culture of British India.
