A lovely, rare, Archibald Knox (attributed) aide memoire with enamel motif to the front, marked for William Hair Haseler. This item was almost certainly retailed through Liberty & Co. The enamel is classic Liberty blue/green and the Celtic knot design motif a lovely and rare example of Knox’ style of work. The aide memoire still contains a period note pad (unused). This aide memoire will appear in Dr Stephen Martin’s forthcoming revised third edition of his book “Archibald Knox.”
