The most celebrated imitative commodities of the later seventeenth and 18th centuries were glass, ceramics, and printed textiles. Many European countries developed their own imitations of Asian printed calicoes and porcelain. Britain later scooped the insatiable markets for colourful printed calicoes by pursuing the high-speed development of a native cotton industry. Moreover, it was British glass, especially flint glass and British earthenware, which introduced a whole new British style of modern consumer goods to middle and upper-class markets at home as well as in Europe and the colonies.
