Archibald Knox was one of the most important designers working for Liberty & Co. He was born on the Isle of Man and his Celtic background strongly influenced his work. This box is decorated with square stylised leaves and flowers. Liberty's marketed this successful design for over 20 years as part of their 'Tudric' range of pewter.
