Based in Southend-on-sea of Essex, southeast England, and incorporated on 30 December 1952, L F Coverdale & Co Ltd began its activity in 1947.
Originally headed by Phyllis Matilda Ellen Wickenden, a small team of craftsmen made high quality brooches, pins, pendants, and clip-on earrings using 24 K gold. Also, silver, enamel, Swarovski crystals, rhinestones, and cultured pearls. The maker’s mark includes initials L.F.C.
Noteworthy, they made jewelry both for sale and for other British jewelry companies. Among them, in particular, were Rosita, Butler & Wilsons and others.
In 1964 Nadine Ellen Joan Wickenden joined the family business and soon became its director. The company ceased to exist in 1995.
