Liberty Comport, 1902 Knox design
Comport - Birmingham 1902 by Liberty & Co. - 14.5cm high; 8cm diameter; 151g - LF/3371
This is a splendid silver comport from the Cymic range offered by Liberty and Co. It has a four-legged Arts & Crafts silver stand inset to the top with four turquoises and fitted with a pale green glass liner. This is almost certainly an Archibald Knox design and similar examples are shown in the book "Archibald Knox" by Stephen A. Martin. This piece would have been used as a centrepiece for serving sweets or mints and is in excellent condition.
