Antique Jewellery Items Sold in the Same City They Were Made

By: Mary-Ann Long

A unique event will soon be happening at an auction house in Birmingham, UK.

Fellows and Sons is putting on an antique jewellery auction, where 20 of the items for sale were originally made and hallmarked in Birmingham.

The unrelated lots can be seen in the firm's online catalogue: http://www.fellows.co.uk/ShowAuction.asp?sAuctionNumber=908

Because Fellows & Sons is 131 years old, it would have been around when some of the items were originally made in the city.

And it is still based in Birmingham's famous jewellery quarter, where antique jewellery has been made for many decades.

A total of 970 lots will be available on the day, both in person and via online bidding at http://www.fellows.co.uk/home/Internet-Buying.asp.

You can also hear a live audio feed of the auction.

Here are three of the Birmingham antique jewellery items coming home to be sold:

Lot 681: An Edwardian 9 carat gold heart shape pendant with overlaid floral design detail and a sapphire set flower. It's hallmarked Birmingham 1904, and is expected to fetch between ?130 and ?200
