Fellows is to auction a beautiful early 20th century brooch which was gifted to an employee of the Evans-Lombe family at Marlingford Hall, in Norwich.
The lot, which will be sold in Fellows’ Antique & Modern Jewellery auction in November, is supplemented with a letter of thanks from the family, in which they express their gratitude and how they shall miss her:
The piece was consigned to Fellows earlier this year at a valuation day at Webbs of Wychbold in Worcestershire and is fitted in a Carrington & Co case. Not only does it come with a sentimental story and provenance but a pearl diamond and emerald wreath design to match.
The jewellery will be offered as lot 88 with an estimate of £700-900.
