BISHTON & FLETCHER

Standard Works, Albion Street, Birmingham


EXTENSIVE ROBBERY OF GOLD

At Birmingham Police Court on Wednesday (before Mr. Kynnersley, stipendiary) Thomas Petty, apparently about 56 years of age, a gold melter, living in Monument-lane, was charged with stealing a quantity of gold and Jewellery belonging to his employers, Messrs. Bishton and Fletcher, manufacturing Jewellers, Standard Works, Albion-street. The firm discharged the prisoner on Tuesday, as he was found to have stolen some gold which he had to make up. Detective-Inspector Cooper afterwards searched the prisoner's lodgings, and found more than £100 worth of gold, which the accused admitted he had stolen from his employers. Prisoner committed the thefts by ingeniously substituting copper for the stolen gold. He was remanded for a week.

H.A. WARWOOD & Co.

Tenby Street, North, Birmingham


Key For Aston Manor Baths

A handsome gold key for the opening of the above public baths was designed and manufactured by Messrs. H. A. Warwood and Company, of Tenby Street, North. The upper portion of the bow embodies the main features of the building, every detail being executed with skilful precision. This is supported by massive scrolls, foliated towards the shaft. The centre is occupied by the arms, crest, and motto of the Manor, carried out in rich enamel. On the reverse is an enamelled shield bearing an inscription. Above is placed the monogram of the recipient. The shaft is of hexagonal shape, embellished with bold and suitable moulded members, which give the key a graceful and architectural appearance. The whole of the work is wrought throughout. Messrs. Warwood have received a flattering expression from Councillor A. Taylor, the recipient of the key, who says: " It is admitted by all who have seen it to be a most beautiful specimen of the goldsmith's art, the workmanship and finish being perfect."
