Bernard Cuzner was a leading figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement and an influential designer of silver during the first half of the 20th Century. He worked for Liberty & Co as one of its key designers of silver for the Cymric range, alongside artists such as Archibald Knox and Oliver Baker. After the Cymric range ceased in 1908, Cuzner continued to supply the firm with silver designs until the late 1930s. He headed the school of metalwork at the Birmingham School of Art from 1919 to 1942. Examples of his work can be found in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
