Signed, sealed de­liv­ered

James Hawkins of Juels’ Lim­ited, The Gold Shop at Diss, up­dates us on the pre­sen­ta­tion of the sil­ver seal of the city to Nor­wich Cas­tle Mu­seum

EDP Norfolk - - Valuations -

Con­tin­u­ing the story from the Septem­ber ar­ti­cle in the EDP Nor­folk mag­a­zine, we men­tioned that we have had the ex­treme good for­tune to come across an an­cient seal for Nor­wich set in wax from an­other dealer.

At Juels’ Lim­ited, we are in a priv­i­leged po­si­tion to work closely with some of the coun­try’s lead­ing crafts­men within the jew­ellery industry. Our con­nec­tions from within the jew­ellery quar­ter in Birm­ing­ham have been amaz­ing in

James Hawkins, left, presents the sil­ver seal to Dr John Davies, chief cu­ra­tor at Nor­wich Cas­tle as­sist­ing us with the mak­ing of the solid sil­ver seal of Nor­wich. But a spe­cial men­tion has to be made to Terry Steven­son from Lois Jew­ellery, with­out whose knowl­edge of the industry we would not have been able to make the pre­sen­ta­tion.

We met up with Dr John Davies, the prin­ci­pal cu­ra­tor at the Keep lo­cated at the heart of Nor­wich Cas­tle. He took time with his as­sis­tants to show us around the keep and ex­plained its re­de­vel­op­ment project. We then had the hon­our of pre­sent­ing the mu­seum with the An­cient and Royal Seal of Nor­wich cast in solid sil­ver.

We aim to work more closely with the mu­seum in fu­ture, in pro­mot­ing this his­toric and won­der­ful lo­ca­tion that is at the fore­front to tourism to the re­gion.

The Nor­wich Cas­tle Mu­seum Keep is a truly won­der­ful, in­spi­ra­tional and ed­u­ca­tional place to visit for res­i­dents and tourists alike. So I have one ques­tion to the read­ers: When was the last time you vis­ited the mu­seum? And if you haven’t been re­cently - why not?
