Join Sue Wilson from the Archibald Knox Forum at the Manx Museum as she explores Industrial Espionage in the late 19th and early 20th century with examples of stolen designs. This is a short talk about the common pratice of copying other people’s designs during the Victorian and Edwardian era in Britain.
Liberty & Co. would have an employee buy a brooch in London, have it copied and made by their silversmith in Birmingham and then sell it as a Liberty & Co, original or exclusive.
There will be a physical example of a Liberty and Co brooch copied and made by another silversmith.
Free – please book your place in advance.
