designed by Silver, Harry,about 1900
designed by Knox, Archibald,
Silver Studio, about 1900

A Christmas card by the Silver Studio in Art Nouveau style from around 1900. The design closely resembles some designs by Archibald Knox for Liberty's metalwork, with the addition of Voyseyesque birds. It is not known for sure whether or not the designer is Harry Silver or Archibald Knox. Whilst it seems likely that Harry Silver produced this Christmas card as the result of his studying the work of Knox and Voysey, both of whom he is known to have admired, the Manx Museum has a copy of this card bearing the initials 'A.K.' in its collections which would indicate that the more likely designer is Knox.
