ARCHIBALD KNOX FOR LIBERTY & Co CYMRIC SILVER & POWELL GLASS ARTS & CRAFTS CLARET JUG
Magnificent and probably unique Arts & Crafts Cymric silver & James Powell of Whitefriars green glass claret jug.
Having researched this design, and other silver claret jugs by Knox we can only find one, or maybe two examples, of each. It would appear that these were made for exhibiton and then orders taken, each one being hand made.
