Originally from the Isle of Man, Archibald Knox knew a great deal about Celtic art and ornamentation. He based this mantle clock on a Celtic cross, giving it raised Roman numerals and abalone shell inlays. Knox helped develop several lines of decorative metalwork for the London retailer Liberty & Company, including several Celtic Revival pieces in pewter.
