nosey_sod Victorian gardening equipment in the glasshouse at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire.

Prior to the mid 19th century a ‘glasshouse’ was an object of awe to the majority of the population. The combination of the window tax (imposed on dwellings) and the glass tax (levied by weight) made even the smallest conservatory remarkable and put glasshouses far beyond the reach of the average squire. The construction of large glasshouses designed by the likes of Joseph Paxton (1803-65) were strictly for the social elite, and their commissioning was a powerful expression of wealth and status.

The word ‘glasshouse’ evokes the grand kitchen gardens of the major estates, but in the Victorian period efforts were soon made to satisfy increasing demand from the rising middle classes. Manufacturers produced plain, functional, self-assembly glasshouses for this emerging market.

Surviving glasshouses and their surrounding gardens represent a unique legacy of Victorian and Edwardian society. Significant in terms of their architecture and design, they are also expressions of social and industrial progress during those periods.

I love the detailing of Victorian Britain, like the hothouse/glasshouse at Clumber Park that's been preserved by the National Trust.

コレクションの一部。
ハウス内は本当にミュージアムのよう。
チャールズは庭のコテージに住み、メインの家は全てコレクションを貯蔵する為に保持していたよう。
