Heritage Week: Exploring Private Collections FREE

A rare opportunity to visit the new Assay Office to appreciate key items from their Private Collections under the expert guidance of curator Craig O ‘Donnell who will deliver a brief introductory talk. The displays of silver demonstrate the diversity of Boulton’s manufactory, the impressive output from Elkington & Co, and the importance of Birmingham in the Arts and Crafts movement. The ingenuity of Birmingham manufacturers in changing their product mix to keep up with fashion and social trends is evident in the variety of small items – Birmingham “toys” – ranging from vinaigrettes and snuff boxes, through name brooches to cigarette cases.
