A rare Liberty & Co Cymric silver lidded jar by Oliver Baker

Price range: £5-10,000

A rare Liberty Cymric lidded jar by Oliver Baker.  The lid studded with fire opals, enamel and other stones centred by a large raised turquoise. This  jar is model 609 in the Liberty sketch book and was published in the earliest Liberty Cymric illustrated catalogue (see images), page 33 described as a “Powder box” and priced at £7 15s.

Condition overall is excellent, there is one small area of enamel restoration visible to the enamel around the body. The lid’s central turquoise is slightly chipped at the base.

A stunning jewel like piece, heavy and satisfying in the hand like most Baker designed pieces.
