Keith & Co., (c. 1824-1929) - silversmiths in Britannia Terrace, City Road, London. Founded by John Keith in about 1824, the company operated for more than a century, interrupted between 1868 and 1874 when his son John James Keith and his employees were working at Cox & Sons, based in the same street as his London agent Franck Smith & Co.
From 1843 Keith & Co. made silver for the Ecclesiological Society under William Butterfield's and from 1856, G.E. Street's supervision, to designs by them and other architects. From 1867 pressure from the Society - particularly from William Burges, who complained about Keith's quality - to use another maker forced bankruptcy.
Keith & Co. were represented at the London exhibitions in 1851 and 1862, and John Keith under Cox & Sons were awarded medals in 1871 for silver designed by Talbert. By the 1870s they were also supplying non-precious metals and church furniture.
John James Keith, the son of John Keith, was later a partner of Cox, Son & Buckley.
