Antique silver from our inventory
Keith & Co. was a London-based silversmith on City Road in London. The company, founded by John Keith in 1824, has been in operation for over a hundred years.
From 1843 they produced cutlery for the Ecclesiological Society, which had a great influence on the development of church architecture and furnishings during this time. The company took part in the London exhibitions in 1851 and 1862, and in 1871, under the patronage of Cos & Sons, John Keith received a silver medal designed by Talbert.
John Keith's son John James later became a partner of Cox, Son & Buckley.
Neo-Gothic baptismal can by Keith & Co., London 1892. It has the traditional, open, rounded shape, which is beautifully decorated with a complex, repeating pattern, typical of the decorations of church objects of his time in England.
