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.
