“Fenella”, a Liberty & Co Cymric silver clasp or buckle
For sale is this silver clasp or buckle designed by either Archibald Knox or David Veazey for Liberty & Co’s Cymric range. The design incorporates Veazey’s classic naturalistic honesty pods but equally the sketch appears in the Silver Studio archive with celtic name Fenella. It appears in the Liberty Silver Sketch book, model 151 and is on page 279 of Steve Martin’s book “Archibald Knox” second edition. This example is enameled and conceivably this buckle was once enameled.
This piece is fully hallmarked on one side of the buckle, the other side carries no marks. There is some sign of an old solder repair to the underside. Overall it presents in excellent condition.
