For sale is this stunning Archibald Knox Liberty & Co Cymric silver preserve or jam jar hallmarked for Birmingham 1905. The bowl is still with its original spoon, similarly hallmarked 1905.

Both jar and spoon are marked 2264, for model 2264 in the Liberty Silver Sketch book.
The glass and silver are in excellent condition, with just minor areas of restoration to the enamel which is particularly vibrant.
