Jewel of the day: Archibald Knox Liberty & Co Amethyst Gold Necklace
Liberty is one of my favourite UK stores. I love the Arts and Crafts era building, and their unique selection of merchandise.
Archibald Knox was the company’s principal designer and his work is highly collectible today. This piece is offered by noted seller of A+C and Art Nouveau pieces Tadema Gallery. They note, “A lovely Liberty & Co Art Nouveau necklace in gold and amethyst designed by Archibald Knox Documented: cf. Liberty Jewellery sketch book page 216, model number 8167 Archibald Knox, Stephen A. Martin, 2001, page 249. Fitted case.”
This sells for USD$$8,277.55.
