The Aesthetic Movement has its nascent roots in the 1860s under the guidance of artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti and designer William Morris. It was dedicated to beauty for beauty's sake. The movement's furniture was influenced by the arts of Japan and featured ebonized wood with gilt highlights.

This Aesthetic Movement credenza, created circa 1875, is ebonized and features bands of satinwood inlay and gilt inlay, along with brass trim throughout. Its gilt neoclassical columns are flanked by two curved glass door curios. Its dimensions are 40-3/4 inches high by 60-1/4 inches wide and 17-1/2 inches deep.

This beautiful piece includes a Wedgwood blue jasper medallion plaque on the central door; it depicts a Grecian woman playing a tambourine. This slightly convex plaque belongs to a group of such plaques created as furniture cartouche decorations.
