House and Home in Georgian Ireland is an absorbing compendium of ten essays on design and life in the long 18th century … the volume devotes much space to the homes of the wealthy merchant and Anglo-Irish landlord classes, for which rich archival and material evidence survives in handsome urban terraces and sumptuous country mansions ... most of the essays shine flashes of light on individual lives: Dean Swift, the great literary satirist, owned the first recorded silver decanter labels, as well as six china coffee cups.” Maev Kennedy, The ART Newspaper, January 2023
