I have written before about the impact Huguenot refugees had on English furniture and other arts from the end of the seventeenth-century. Bendor Grosvenor posted an interesting piece about Boughton House on his blog yesterday, The Huguenots at ‘Britain’s Versailles’.

Unfortunately I already have a candidate from this period for the book, but the ash chest is definitely at the top of the list of non-book furniture.
