Arts & Crafts silver & enamel bowl

An Edwardian Arts & Crafts style silver bowl with elegantly hand-painted blue and green enamel decorations, attributed to the designer Archibald Knox who created many silver pieces for Liberty & Co. The cone-shaped sterling silver bowl is mounted on three c-shaped supports and above each of the three curved enamel panels there are hand-chased woven knot designs, typical design cues of Knox's work.

A beautiful and decorative example of the the Arts & Crafts style, this bowl could be used to serve nuts or sweets.

Liberty & Co was more than just a luxury and prolific shop, it was also a major hub for both the Arts & Crafts Movement and Art Nouveau. Liberty vastly contributed to the patronage of up and coming jewellery artists, furniture makers and designers, which included those who were involved within these movements.

The Arts & Crafts movement emerged from a disenchantment with the impersonal, mechanised direction of society in the 19th century, and sought to return to a simpler, more fulfilling way of living. The movement was admired for its use of high quality materials and for its emphasis on utility in design.
