The candelabrum is the centrepiece for the first exhibition in the new ground-floor exhibition space at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter, which opened on March 28.

A permanent exhibition in the museum’s new first floor gallery, entitled ‘Story of the Jewellery Quarter’ is also open to the public.

It showcases the huge range of precious metal products that have been made in the Quarter over the past 200 years including toys and larger silver items from The Birmingham Assay Office Silver Collection.

The Birmingham Assay Office has also worked in partnership with Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery on the exhibition ‘Matthew Boulton: Selling What All the World Desires’.

Other partners in this project include Birmingham Libraries and Archives, the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University and the Lunar Society.

It opens to the public on Saturday, May 30 when there will be exciting things happening in Chamberlain Square.
