The Friday Photo – Vaughton Gothic Works
The Friday Photo- Vaughton Gothic Works by Clare Overton Lewis
Found on Livery Street in the Jewellery Quarter, Vaughton Gothic Works is a red brick, Grade II listed building built in 1902. It was a gold and silversmiths that manufactured badges, medals, mayoral chains and other civic jewellery. The company were also the producers of the second FA cup, made in 1895 after the original cup was stolen from a shop in Birmingham where it was being repaired. The Works is one of my favourite buildings in the Jewellery Quarter, I love the ornate Gothic-style lettering, so decorative for an industrial building. It is now the home of Hatters Hostel.
