Archibald Knox Beaker, Liberty 1902
Beaker - Birmingham 1902 by Liberty & Co. - 7.4cm high; 6.8cm diameter; 168g - DO/4857
This very beautiful silver beaker was almost certainly designed by Archibald Knox for Liberty's Cymric range. It fits perfectly in the hand and has a good sturdy feel and commensurately hefty weight. The Art Nouveau flower heads spread in four tendrils down the body and terminate in pod feet. The marks to the underside are clear including the "Cymric" mark. An excellent piece of Liberty silver.
