Liberty & Co., founded in London by Arthur Lasenby Liberty in 1875, was a purveyor of Japanese objects, exotic fabrics, and Art Nouveau silver and pewter. This vase is #030 in Liberty’s “Tudric” line of pewterware, introduced in 1901 and manufactured for them by W. H. Haseler, a Birmingham jeweler and silversmith. The stamp on the bottom tells us that it was made prior to 1914. The unplanished hammer marks are typical of the aesthetic of the time, which celebrated the mark of the craftsman’s hand.
