This ice bowl—made in the 1960’s—has a decidedly earlier, Aesthetic Movement sensibility to it. The Aesthetic Movement, popular in the last quarter of the Nineteenth Century, often used Japanese graphic elements in a “cut and paste” manner. Of course, Japanese style much-influenced late Nineteenth Century Western artists—in fine art (Impressionism), in music (The Mikado, Madama Butterfly), in fashion (jewelry and dress) and in interior decor (furniture, woodwork, and metalwork). The ice bowl, shown above, matches the single and double old fashioned glasses which we have carried in the past.
