Objects such as these used in domestic and personal life were craft produced with such care and attention that they became works of art. Sometimes commissioned directly by the wealthy, the beautiful object was seen as an adjunct to their social status and the distinction between luxury and function was only partial. In the early 19th century writing objects and diary’s were the privilege of the learned literate few, and hence by definition clear markers of social status.
