This extensive monograph shows the versatility of Archibald Knox as a designer, and the originality of his designs in silver, pewter and jewellery, as also ceramics and textiles. He worked for many years for Arthur Lasenby Liberty and contributed to the success of the company in London.
The many variations of this type of necklace are testimony of his artistic imagination, cf. also a necklace of similar design in the Victoria and Albert Museum (Clare Phillips, Jewels and Jewellery, V&A Publishing, London, p. 111).
