    This gorgeous silver and enamel pendant is signed WHH SILVER for William Hair Haseler. This firm of silversmiths was in partnership with Liberty & Co. and produced all the Liberty Cymric silver, Tudric pewter wares, as well as the Liberty gold and silver jewellery.

    This is probably an Archibald Knox design, and it shows just how good the Liberty/WHH enamelists were. The second pic is in higher res, hopefully you can zoom in closer.

    I've also seen this same pendant in a red and orange enamel colour-way, marked JBB for John Baker Bennett (of Murrle Bennett), which seems to indicate there was some design sharing (or outsourcing of manufacture?) between Liberty & Murrle Bennett.

      Wonderful color and design!
      May I ask your opinion about the maker of my last enamel butterfly?

      I have seen similar enamel work over martele silver by Schaverien & Eastmead. BelleEpoque posted a piece of theirs last year.

      I love the way you're restoring your pieces, it must be painstaking work, but so rewarding for you and for us seeing the finished article.

      Thank you, I suspect it too but there is not a lot and it is difficult to get pics of the back side.
      Thank you so much too for your compliment about my restores :-)
