Works by Knox are also held in galleries and museums in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the USA and London.Taking inspiration from the designs on the ancient stone crosses of the Isle of Man, Archibald Knox created innovative and intricate designs which became the hallmark of the internationally renowned Liberty & Co. This Tudric design clock is one of his greatest objects.

Knox was a multi-talented and prolific artist, who designed everything from silver tea services and clocks to slate gravestones and grocer's bank cheques, and became a leading exponent of the British Art Nouveau movement.

He worked in a wide variety of media producing numerous metalwork and pottery designs for Liberty, watercolours of the Manx landscape and graphic designs, as well as teaching for several years both in England and the Isle of Man.

His work continues to influence and inspire new generations of artists and collectors throughout the world.
