Royal House Antiques

Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this exceptionally rare and absolutely stunning fully hallmarked 1906 Liberty’s London Sterling Silver & Enamel miniature carriage clock made by the wonder that is Archibald Knox.

I am now listing my three liberty’s clocks, I have one Tudric pewter and two miniature sterling silver & enamel fully restored carriage clocks, all listed under my other items and made by Archibald Knox.

This clock has been fully restored, the case has been straightened and aligned and professionally polished, the movement removed and serviced. Its fully hallmarked with the sideways facing Lion for sterling silver, the ship Anchor for Birmingham, the date letter G for 1906, and lastly L&Co for Liberty and Co.

Between the years of 1899 and 1910 Archibald Knox was one of the principal designers for the London department store Liberty & Co. He designed for many mediums including metal ware, jewellery, terra-cotta garden ware and graphic design. He was responsible for many of the designs in their Cymric silver and Tudric pewter ranges and his designs are generally accepted as the most accomplished. His designs drew on various influences but most notably the Celtic and Norse heritage of his birthplace, the Isle of Man. As a collector of local ancient artifacts and a scholar of Manx crosses and standing stones he combined strong simple forms with sparse but intricate detail. This, along with a perfect sense of form and proportion, resulted in an instantly recognisable style that has made Knox one of the most important names of the Arts & Crafts movement.

In terms of the condition as mentioned its fully restored, the only point to note there is a scratch in the top of the glass, I didn’t have it removed as it’s the original glass, the clock runs for days and days perfectly.

CONDITION

Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description pertaining to the condition. Please also ask any questions before you bid and not after, all of our items are sold as seen and as listed

Royal House Antiques cannot be held liable for any independent assumptions made regarding the items we sell, if you are unsure on any point, please feel free to ask for clarity  

Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of creasing and wear, we recommend annual waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade   

 

IMPORT DUTY

Most countries charge some kind of import duty however almost all of our items won’t incur any charges as the items are exempt from tax due to the age and materials used

For European deliveries the price you will be quoted will include all clearance documentation and any customs charges so there won’t be any additional fees

For international deliveries such as the United States there can be some import duty to pay and or a clearance fee, I would estimate that 99% of all deliveries clear customs without being stopped for either

All duties are the responsibility of the purchaser who is the importer, they can’t be covered by the seller or shipping agent or factored in with additional retrospective discounts

 

RETURNS

Royal House Antiques offers a no quibble return policy if the item is not as described, if there are any issues with the piece you will be refunded in full once the item has been returned and inspected within 14 days, alternatively if there is a small issue, we can discuss finding a mutual resolution that makes all parties happy

We don’t offer a sale on approval service which means you can purchase the item, have it delivered and if you simply don’t like it, return it, this comes under change of mind or doesn’t fit. There is a lot of time, money and work involved in transporting goods around the world, the costs incurred can be vast so my advice would be if you are unsure on a piece please ask as many questions as you like to make sure you understand everything before you buy, if you are still unsure then please either arrange a viewing in person or if that’s not possible then don’t buy from an online retailer, perhaps look for a local gallery instead
