Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

A cool Victorian silver cuff bangle worked in the Aesthetic style with storks and a gorgeous hand-chased jungle backdrop. It's crafted in Sterling silver and dates from the 1880s.

The English Aesthetic Movement was directly inspired by the London International Exhibition of 1862, where a large collection of Japanese art and objects were shown to a wide audience. Artists and Craftspeople would incorporate Japanese themes - usually depicting birds, flowers, plant foliage, and other scenes from nature - into their work, often citing the pursuit of pure beauty or "Art for Art's sake" as their ultimate goal. It was literally all about the aesthetics.
