An extremely rare early set of 5 silver and enamel "Sabra" tea spoons designed by
Knox for Liberty & Co. They are in beautiful condition and were part of the "Cymric" range.
Each spoon is clearly hallmarked for Birmingham 1903 with the special LC&CLd
Liberty & Co mark. Text books state that this mark was only used by Liberty in 1903
but I have seen items with the mark dated 1902 and 1905.
