Pair Liberty Co Arts & Crafts Pewter Candlesticks by Archibald Knox. Antique C.1900

This classic pair of Arts and Crafts candlesticks were designed by Archibald Knox for Liberty and Co and date to around 1900. They are design number 221.

Constructed in pewter that has mellowed well, they have a fantastic almost industrial form, enhanced by the light celtic detailing on the base. Knox was responsible for most of the metalware designs coming out of Libertys at that time and his mix of bold new shapes, Celtic details and use of traditional materials such as pewter, put Libertys far ahead of its competition at the time.

These examples are stamped 'English Pewter' to the base but are also found with the Liberty's own Tudric stamp as well as others.

These are offered in very good original condition.

Dimensions: height 15cm or 5.9"; diameter of base 12cm or 4.72"

Weight together: 680 gr or 437 dwt
