The efforts of seventeenth century colonists to approximate the comforts of home with imported luxuries are recalled by the delft pottery, puzzle jugs, and posset pots; brass, silver, and pewter candlesticks, Italian brocatelle and an Ushak, or "Turkey," carpet on the floor. The warmth provided by such imported materials gave the colonists a sense of security and protection in the wilderness.
