Imagine a breezy springtime morning, windows open to the sunshine and the table laid for an intimate brunch gathering with friends. Amid the flowers, porcelain plates, and neatly folded napkins sits a beautiful antique compote crowned with fresh fruit. 

This lovely English compote comes to us from the late 19th-century and carries with it all the charms of that era. The piece is bottom-stamped with the Victorian Design Registration Mark - a designation which was in use from 1842 to 1883, and certified that the compote's design was registered with the U.K.'s patent office. 

Beautifully transferware decorated with cherry blossoms in warm brown hues, the compote's decoration also has design elements that are hallmarks of the Aesthetic Design Movement of the time. A style known to borrow and combine a wide variety of design elements from other periods and cultures all in the name of beauty, this compote is certain to be the perfect complement for any garden party, buffet or dinner table.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Date code stamped with its date of manufacture: June 16, 1880. In good antique condition with light discoloration to the interior of the compote's bowl due to age. Measures 5.25"H x 8.75"D.

 

Learn More About the Aesthetic Movement

The mid-19th century Aesthetic Movement was just that - a movement away from the fussy and conservative traditions of High Victorian sensibility and towards a desire to create "art for art's sake". A desire which extended beyond fine art to also include architecture, fashion, furniture, interior design and decorative arts.

The Aesthetic Movement was relatively brief, lasting only 25 - 30 years, but acted as a transitional bridge to the Arts & Crafts movement and eventually 20th century modern art.
