Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale. Exceptionally rare and absolutely stunning fully hallmarked 1906 Libertys London Sterling Silver & Enamel miniature carriage clock made by the wonder that is Archibald Knox. This clock has been fully restored, the case has been straightened and aligned and professionally polished, the movement removed and serviced. Between the years of 1899 and 1910 Archibald Knox was one of the principal designers for the London department store Liberty & Co.
He designed for many mediums including metal ware, jewellery, terra-cotta garden ware and graphic design. He was responsible for many of the designs in their Cymric silver and Tudric pewter ranges and his designs are generally accepted as the most accomplished. His designs drew on various influences but most notably the Celtic and Norse heritage of his birthplace, the Isle of Man.
As a collector of local ancient artifacts and a scholar of Manx crosses and standing stones he combined strong simple forms with sparse but intricate detail. This, along with a perfect sense of form and proportion, resulted in an instantly recognisable style that has made Knox one of the most important names of the Arts & Crafts movement. In terms of the condition as mentioned its fully restored, the only point to note there is a scratch in the top of the glass, I didnt have it removed as its the original glass, the clock runs for days and days perfectly. Height:- 9.8cm top to bottom, 8.5cm discounting the handle.
