This is a belt buckle designed by Archibald Knox for Liberty & Company, London in 1902. Knox was a designer for Liberty from the late 1890s and came to be one of the most influential designers of the twentieth century. The buckle has an art nouveau style (free flowing curving lines with natural motifs such as floral patterns and butterflies). Art Nouveau was first popularised in Paris during the late 1890s, but quickly spread across Europe.
