BUTTERWORTH Jeweller
late 1890s to present

"I was thrilled to see the coral earrings in their original box. "G" was George Butterworth, my great uncle. He was apprenticed in his home town of Rochdale as a gold and silver worker when he left school, setting up in Shipley, Yorkshire where he was later joined by his brother (my grandfather) in 1900. They then traded as Butterworth Brothers (but might have used up existing boxes of course). I have attached an image of G Butterworth. The photo was taken in 1900 when he was 27." 

The box lid says, "G. Butterworth, watchmaker & Jeweller, Kirkgate, Shipley (England)", circa early 1900's.

"In 1903 they moved back to Rochdale and set up here, where the family has traded ever since. George died in 1930. His brother survived him by 27 years.
 
I knew very little about the early days in Shipley except that a guard dog named Piper was kept and he caught a burglar! Now I know where the shop was and I have been able to make further enquiries and gain more detailed knowledge about their lives at that time."
"I have never seen a box for G Butterworth before and did not know that he had traded alone for a while.
 
With kind regards
Louise Butterworth
 Butterworth Brothers "

 

 

    

C.A.C. in an oval

CC
unidentified maker, sometimes confused with Carence Crafters.
 

According to the Goldsmiths’ Hall, Foster Lane, London,  the mark of Catherine Anne Cockerell, first registered in 1929 takes the form of the letters C.A.C. within an oval. An English jewelry maker who worked from the 1930's to 1990, she was the daughter of Douglas Cockerell, the English bookbinder of some renown. Her real name was Catherine, but liked to call herself 'Casty'. Her married name was Cobb. There was an obituary of her in The Independent  (British daily newspaper) in 1995. (Her family was kind enough to bring her to my attention).
