Whimsical Victorian locket engraved with a red squirrel on a branch. I love squirrels and couldn't resist this piece.
This piece is classic Aesthetic Movement, which aimed to escape the ugliness and materialism of the Industrial Age, by focusing instead on producing art that was beautiful rather than having a deeper meaning – 'Art for Art's sake'. The artists and designers in this 'cult of beauty' crafted some of the most sophisticated and sensuously beautiful artworks of the Western tradition and in the process remade the domestic world of the British middle-classes.
