BIRMINGHAM, UK – A rare Art Deco diamond bracelet from esteemed jewelry designer and silversmith Hennell will be offered at a Fellows auction Sept. 17. The rarity of this alluring piece, which is set entirely with diamonds, is represented by the fact that Fellows has never sold a piece of Hennell jewelry before. Bid absentee or live online through LiveAuctioneers.
The bracelet has an estimate of £5,000-£7,000 ($6,500-$9,100) and will be offered among some of the best jewelry that Fellows has to offer. David Hennell founded his company in 1736, and quickly established himself as a prominent London silversmith. The family supplied royalty and the upper classes with some of the finest silverware the country had to offer. However, it was not until the late 1800s that the company began to show an interest in jewelry manufacturing. While the silverware and earlier jewelry is still very much sought-after, it wasn’t until the 1920s and 1930s when Hennell truly came to the fore and cemented themselves as a high-end jewelry manufacturer, rivaling other top brands and producing some truly exquisite jewels. Fellows will offer a perfect example of these exquisite jewels in the upcoming sale.
“With its stylish geometric form, this fabulous bracelet typifies Art Deco design and with an impressive estimated total of 17 to 18 carats of diamond adorning the piece, it truly is a showstopper,” said Alex Duffy, jewelry specialist at Fellows Auctioneers.
