A rare Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co silver buckle

Price: Sold

For sale is this rare silver buckle designed by Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co’s Cymric range.  It is an early Knox design with Liberty’s London assay mark.  The design combines Knox classic early motifs of Celtic entrelac and hearts with “thorn” like silver surround.  It will appear in Dr Stephen Martin’s forthcoming book  “Archibald Knox”, revised third edition.  This buckle, as far as I know, has not been seen before. In excellent, (astonishing even) crisp, original condition.
