The initials CQ&R in a triangle shape are marked in the inside, standing for Carter, Qvarnstrom and Remington in business in Attleboro, Mass, from 1899 until at least 1930 when they are listed in History of Massachusett Industries, Their Inception, Growth and Success by Orra L. Stone (1930). Attleboro was the hub of the gold filled jewelry business in the 19th century. This pretty locket is in good condition.
