A wonderful Liberty & Co. Cymric tray with enamel motifs designed by Archibald Knox.

The model number is 5183 and it is the 15" tray from a lady's vanity set.

The hallmarks on this example are fantastic and show that it was assayed in Birmingham in 1912. A truly beautiful and well kept piece of Knox history.

A Liberty & Co silver pen tray set with classic Celtic style enamels designed by Archibald Knox.  The enamels are in excellent original condition. Marked for model 5183.   This is a heavier, larger version than the typical pen or pin trays in this style.  With it’s clean lines it has a very modern feel to it.
