Knox, Archibald,
Liberty & Co. Ltd, retailer; designed by Silver Studio, 1898

A woven textile featuring an Art Nouveau pattern of stylised flowers, including tulips, and leaves, arranged in squares, in ochre and green, on a red ground. The textile design is by the Silver Studio and appears in the Studio's photographic records for around 1900 (Studio Number 12576). This design has previously been attributed to Archibald Knox for the Silver Studio. Accompanying daybooks, which would have provided details of designer and manufacturer, have been lost, so it is impossible to give a definitive attribution to Knox, but there are strong stylistic similarities with other designs known to be by him.
