Aesthetic Movement oak tale or stool, the framed and panelled top over an elaborately turned under frame.
English, circa 1870 - 1900
The Aesthetic Movement was an intellectual and art movement of the late 19th Century supporting the emphasis of aesthetic values more than social-political themes for literature, fine art, music and other arts. This meant that art from this particular movement focused more on being beautiful rather than having a deeper meaning — "art for art‘s sake".
