The Ludovica Hook


Here Pinxton & Co. have revived an American Aesthetic design of the late 19th century, with an all-over cross-hatched decoration to the upper & lower hooks.

The Aesthetic Movement was a late Victorian design movement that arrived in the U.S. in the 1880's. Names associated with the American Aesthetic taste include Eastlake, Tiffany, and the Herter Brothers. The movement embraced interpretations of Japanese motifs and Orientalisism in general; in Hardware & Metalwork every surface bore the potential for embellishment, and numerous iron, brass, and bronze items were accented with Asian inspired design elements.
