Grand Dining Set includes one dining table, two arm chairs and eight side chairs

Our opulent Camilla Dining set is named after the feminist writer, Jacobine Camilla Collet. Born in January 1813, she is recognised as being one of the first contributors to realism in Norwegian literature. Her most famous work is her only novel, Amtmandens Døtre (The District Governor's Daughters) which was published anonymously in two separate parts. The book is considered one of the first political and social realism novels in Norway and deals with the difficulties of being a woman in a patriarchal society in general and forced marriages specifically. After the writing of Amtmandens Døtre, she focused largely on reviews and essays about literature, many of which solidified Camilla as the first feminist literary critic in Norway.
