Room 53a delves further into the asymmetrical Rococo style . Motifs which typify the style such as 'C' and 'S' scrolls as well as marine elements can be seen on several objects in this room.  Also in this room is a display on ceramic production in the 18th century. Important milestones, such as the discovery of porcelain and the establishment of the first factories in London at Chelsea, Limehouse and Bow are explored here.
