Description

This is a beautiful piece of jewellery by one of the top makers of the era - William Hair Haseler, the Birmingham based silversmith and jeweller was contracted to produce the silverware, jewellery and and Tudric pewter ranges for Liberty & Co.
Haseler worked from the sketches of famous designers of the era such as Archibald Knox, Oliver Baker and Jessie M. King.

This stunning brooch depicts a stylised Art Nouveau tulip design with upward sweeping leaves at the edges - the centre of the tulip and the spaces between the flower head and leaves has been infilled with a beautiful shimmering blue / green enamel - in addition, the central enamel panel has an orange flash that really enhances the colour - I've looked in detail at the enamel and it appears that there is also a small foiled area within the flower head to add an extra layer of quality to the piece.

I can't be certain who designed this piece - the tulip design is very reminiscent of Archibald Knox pieces, but without a cross reference to the Liberty Jewellery design sketchbook I can't be certain.

Some sellers will often miss-attribute any Liberty piece to Knox when in fact there were a number of extremely talented contemporaries of him who also worked for the company (see a few of the names above).

The reverse of the brooch is simply marked silver and has the silversmiths mark of W.H.H. for William Hair Haseler - the lack of full hallmarks isn't itself unusual and pieces by this silversmith that were actually retailed through Liberty & Co may be found today.

Also to the back is a simple round hinge and C clasp mechanism, which is totally correct for the period.

The brooch measures 3.5cm across and is 1.4cm top to bottom - the total unpacked weight is 4.7g

The condition of the item all round is excellent with no faults to report - the silver is very clean and the enamel is perfect! - both the hinge and pin work exactly as they should.

This is great collectors piece by a top period maker - it deserves to be worn as originally intended.

Prices for Liberty jewellery of the early 20th century have always keen, but over the last few years they seem to have risen as a new generation of collectors start to appreciate the 'Liberty Style'.
