A good 18ct gold locket made by Edwin William Streeter. Streeter set up business in 1867 in Conduit Street. He then moved in 1873 to New Bond Street where he described himself as ‘Diamond merchant, Goldsmith, Jeweller, Watchmaker’. He took a particular interest in precious stones. Although he announced his retirement in 1884 and sold off much of his stock, he did not retire but admitted partners into his business which was now restyled Streeter & Co and became a limited liability company in 1895 as Streeter & Co Ltd. By 1904 E W Streeter finally retired. This locket was made circa 1880 and has a lucky horseshoe on the front set with turquoise to mean “Forget me not” after the flower of the same name.
