No.16 forms a group with Nos.14 and 15 Frederick Street (q.v.)

A small jewellery manufactory of c.1870, built when adjacent residential properties and associated garden areas and vacant plots were being developed as industrial premises. Despite alteration, it retains the distinctive architectural and plan form characteristics which distinguish the purpose-built manufactories of this specialist manufacturing district of Birmingham, now recognised as being of international significance.
