Aesthetic Movement inspired scene

One of the very first "antiques' I ever purchased was this English tureen transfer decorated in the Aesthetic Movement style. To a child of the late 1950's and early 60's, surrounded by the "modern" and "contemporary" designs of the day with the emphasis on elimination of detail and decoration, the fanciful images of juxtaposed patterns, fine detail, and mixed abstractions and realism impressed themselves upon me. Now, nearly half a century later, I still admire the aesthetic explorations, which acted as the "modernism" of the 1880's.
