About the object

For sale is this very special Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co silver milk jug set with lapis stone.  The bowl is pierced to create a strong celtic design.  The only other known example of this jug forms part of a magnificent tea and coffee set on display in the Victoria and Albert Museum, British Galleries ref M.8:1 to 5-2004.

The jug is of a very heavy gauge of silver, and overall its quality of manufacture suggests it would have been a special order from Liberty. It is a pair to A359, sugar bowl.

An example, without piercing,  can be seen on page 199 (held by the Manx Museum, Douglas) of Steve Martin’s book on Knox.
