Abstract

The relevance of porcelain and other ceramics as a social status symbol appears accompanied by the possession of silver objects and glass, framing it in a context of refinement of gestures and attitudes, which the nineteenth-century society experienced with particular intensity. Between 1815 and 1817, Lieutenant General Luís Inácio Xavier Palmeirim acquired a set of dining table sets, knowledge of which is provided through detailed records in his archive. In this context, we emphasize the order for a table service with several hundred pieces, made in Macao from Rio de Janeiro. Carried out in two phases, this acquisition is accompanied by formal and decorative details of porcelain, which transform it into an important source for the knowledge of the Asian market for luxury goods in the first quarter of the nineteenth century.
