The Royal Pavilion in Brighton, one of the most famous Regency era buildings, is replete with images and carvings of dragons.

The popularity of Chinoserie peaked around the middle of the 18th century. The decorative arts, interior design and fashion were all influenced by this artistic tradition.

This continued into The Regency when masquerade balls were likewise popular.
