Domestic objects

In New France, the interior of the home was quite incomplete without domestic objects, such as those used for heating, lighting or preparing food or even those used for housekeeping. All such objects were found in comfortable and modest homes. Nobles, the middle class, tradespeople and peasants were all likely to own such objects. Nevertheless, certain objects were the prerogative of those who were well off, such as administrators, members of the military and merchants, to name just a few.
