copper biscuit box
designed by Knox, Archibaldabout 1903
This plain copper version biscuit box was designed by Archibald Knox in around 1903. It is decorated with celtic style flowers and has a sponge set into the lid of the box. It was probably made as a prototype. A similar-shaped box, without a lid, was advertised in Liberty & Co's 'Yuletide Gifts in Tudric Pewter' catalgoue of 1900, as a 'fern pot' showing how designs might be easily be adapted for different purposes.
