Indian gem on offer in Salisbury

11 January 2013Written by ATG Reporter

The first sale of the year for Woolley & Wallis’ jewellery department takes place on January 24 in Salisbury.

Pictured here is an Indian gem set gold pendant estimated at £600-800.

It is inscribed to the reverse with a quote from the Hindu Holy Book Bhagavad Gita, with Sri Bhagavate, meaning 'The Father of Creation which is unchangeable and permanent' and Namaha - 'I thank you and I acknowledge this presence in my life. I ask for your guidance at all times'.

The sale will also include 20 lots from the collection of the late silver dealer Michael Wellby. Sotheby's dispersed a large part of his collection in a £2.8m white glove sale in December 2012.
