  • Antiques, Silver & Collectables

    Our team prides itself on a personal, hands-on approach, ensuring you receive the best possible advice and hammer price for your items. Our dedicated specialists are qualified to provide expert advice and valuations on a wide range of antiques, silver and collectables, including

    • glassware
    • ceramics
    • porcelain
    • paintings
    • clocks
    • furniture

    The sale takes place every six weeks.

    In 2018 we sold one of our largest ever collections of Blue John, a semi-precious mineral found only in Derbyshire, and used to create various objects, including bowls and jewellery. The extensive Blue John collection included brilliantly designed bowls and pedestal urns, along with stunning raw specimens. Other popular items sold in recent Antiques & Collectables sales include Italian Lenci fine pottery figures and oil paintings, including two oil paintings on canvas by Zocchi (Confidences and All the World) which reached £11,228.80 (all fees included).

    These auctions usually include Georgian, Victorian and modern silver hollowware (e.g. teapots, sugar bowls, food covers and cake stands) and flatware (e.g. canteens of cutlery, fish knives and forks, carving sets and loose cutlery), as well as an interesting selection of coins and military medals. We recently sold a silver-gilt & enamel Freedom casket by Walker & Hall and a 1920's large silver chalice by Alywn Carr.

    If you would like to discover the value of any items in your possession, Fellows offer a variety of complementary and confidential valuations options in Birmingham and London.
