Abstract
This project provided new insights into Charleston history and culture. The study suggested that the households under consideration used material culture related to dining and tea drinking as one of several ways of demarcating their class positions and affiliations. One of the findings of this study was that stylistic devices on ceramic teawares may have served to signal class affiliations among the planters. This study also explored the meanings attached to certain artifacts in the context of southern society.
