From Wikipedia:

Knox’s hundreds of designs for Liberty‘s made his style widely known,[8] (though not his name, as Liberty’s kept their designers anonymous) as did his watercolours, graphic designs and fonts. His design talent covered a wide range of objects, ornamental and utilitarian, and included silver and pewter tea sets, jewellery, inkwells, boxes, gravestones and even bank cheques,[9] much for Liberty’s Tudric (pewter) and Cymric (precious metals) ranges. The gravestone of Liberty’s founder, Arthur Lasenby Liberty, was designed by Knox.

Composed of platinum, gold, diamond, enamel, and opal. In this pendant for Liberty & Co., Knox used opal mosaic to depict a painterly scene of a boat outlined by a fiery sunset on London’s River Thames.
