A beautiful pair of Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co sugar tongs in silver and enamel
A beautiful pair of Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co sugar tongs in silver and enamel. These were designed in around 1902 and this pair was made in 1929 when, based on auction records, it seems for a period of about two years Liberty re-issued some of the Cymric designs, especially the flatware. The enamel on these tongs is particulalry good, original and in perfect order. This design will appear in Stephen Martin’s forthcoming revised third edition of his book, Archibald Knox.
