Antique and Modern Jewelry on the Auction Block in the UK on January 12, 2010

Those of you who collect antique jewelry are well aware that the UK has a treasure trove of hard to find antique jewelry items that you just can't find here in the US. Are you a collector of this period of jewelry who plans to be in the UK in January of 2010? Fellows & Sons Auctioneers of Birmingham, UK will host a sale of vintage and antique jewelry on January 12 that you may want to include in your trip itinerary.

Fellows is a well known UK auction house that specializes in many types of auctions including Antique & Modern Jewelry. Costume Jewelry, Second Hand Jewelry & Watches, as well as general auctions for Silver, Furniture and toys and dolls.

Their upcoming antique and modern jewelry auction will feature almost 700 wonderful pieces, with many early 20th century beauties, including my favorite - the oval shell cameo brooch shown above which depicts a figure with turban, holding a flagon of wine. It has a shaped frame with floral and scroll design and comes with a fitted case.

Estimates are reasonable for the sale and range from £30 to about £1000

Some other highlights of the auction are shown below. The selection ranges from Georgian fobs through exotic figurals, rings and gorgeous chunky charm bracelets as well as a big range of my favorite - antique cameos. There is a big range of genuine carat gold featured, as well. I have chosen antique pieces for my highlights photos, but there is also a nice range of modern jewelry on the auction block too.







For those of you who won't be in the UK in January, you can do a virtual tour of the auction highlights by viewing Fellows' auction catalogue for the sale. So grab a cup of tea, as the Brits say, and enjoy!

  4. Those of you who collect Modern Jewelry are probably well aware that the UK is the place of choice to discover hard to find Modern Jewelry items that you just can't find here in the USA. With the rich Georgian and Victorian history in England, many fabulous pieces from these eras originate in the UK and often remain there.
