Birmingham-based Fellows Auctioneers is collaborating with Swedish Court Jewellers W.A.Bolin on a joint auction to be held in Stockholm on April 23.
The Bolin Fine Jewellery Spring Auction will feature in excess of 500 lots including fine, antique and modern jewellery from across Scandinavia as well as pieces from Cartier, Bulgari, Van Cleef and Arpels. The auction has a total starting price of around £1.5m.
The auction will be supported by the websites of both companies, as well as via Fellow’s established bidding partners, The Saleroom and Live Auctioneers. Bidders can also leave bids in absentia and book telephone bids.
There will be viewings in London, on April 4, and in Stockholm, on April 18, and the catalogue will be online from March 31. Images are in high-resolution and 360-degree photography has been used on selected pieces to aid viewing. Bidders using the Fellows website can also create a wish list and share images via platforms including Whatsapp and Facebook.
Fellows and Bolin are both family-run businesses and the two companies have a shared history of over 360 years. Bolin, founded in 1791, has been Court Jeweller to five Russian tsars and three Swedish Kings. It is also a well-established auction house. Birmingham-based Fellows, founded in 1876, now holds close to 100 jewellery, watch and antique auctions per year.
