Two brooches with Melbourne mint Sovereigns.

Professor GWK (Ken) Cavill is a well-known academic from the University of NSW, an avid collector and researcher of Australian silver and jewellery. Ken’s book “Australian Jewellers: Gold & Silversmiths, Makers & Marks, 1992” written with Graham Cocks & Jack Grace is one of Australia’s foremost reference books on early Australian jewellery, with quite a few pieces up for auction appearing within the book.
This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an early piece of Australia’s history with jewellery like this rarely coming up for auction.
