The Dressing Room
In larger Georgian Houses men and women would have separate dressing rooms. Although this room is set out as a gentleman’s room it is more likely to have been shared. The artifacts in this room reflect the types of items that would have been used by a middle class gentleman.
The washing of ones face, feet and hands was a daily ritual, while bathing ones body was not. The washing of the entire body may only have happened a handful of times over the period of a year.
People would wash in basins. A portable hip-bath would be placed in the dressing room if they decided to bathe completely.
