He returned to Baltimore and started his new enterprise, taking on partners after 1887. Mr. Haynes was committed to the "art for art's sake" thesis of the Aesthetic Movement, so he did not try to create exquisitely rare and beautiful pieces for the rich in the manner of Tiffany, but rather wanted useful and beautiful items made affordable by the masses.
