Mrs Anne Hull Grundy donated a large collection of jewellery to Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. This was one of a number of donations she made to museums in this country. She was concerned that each collection she gave to a museum should suit its manufacturing history and existing collections. Hence she wished her Birmingham Collection to reflect the work of Birmingham jewellers, especially their contribution to the Arts & Crafts Movement.The Birmingham artists Georgie and Arthur Gaskin took to jewellery making when both were mature artists. Georgie was the dominant jeweller; Arthur did most of the enamelling and had a particular interest in medieval metalwork. They began exhibiting jewellery in 1899; when they exhibited at the 1901 Glasgow International Exhibition, Georgie was reviewed as the jeweller of the two.
