Archibald Knox for Liberty terracotta stand and planter

Price: Sold

I am delighted to have assisted a client with the purchase of this fantastic terracotta stand and planter.  This is a less well known area of Knox’s design prowess, but one of his most successful areas, in addition to Liberty’s metalwork.

These were made c 1903-5 and the stand and planter are given the respective names Gnomme and Beowulf in Liberty catalogues’ of the period.  These were probably made by Carter & Co, and not by Mary Seton Watt’s Compton pottery as is often stated.  For more information on Knox’s terracotta  designs see the article by Dr Stephen Martin at this link.
