Treasured Possessions began as an unprecedented collaboration between the Applied Arts Department of the Fitzwilliam Museum and staff and students from the History Faculty at Cambridge University. A number of historians were also invited to contribute to the catalogue, published as a book.This chapter, written with an economic and global historian, considers how luxury goods in the eighteenth century were at the same time cosmopolitan and trans-national as well as carrying specific local meanings and usages.
