E H & Co Pierced Serving Spoon

Post by hpidaves »

I believe this 8-1/2" pierced serving spoon is made by E. Howard & Co (mainly a watch company, from what I have found). I have no idea as to age or pattern. The maker's name can be seen on the reverse of the handle just past the bowl, next to the patent date, which I cannot make out.

Any information on this company, pattern and piece type would be helpful.

Thanks,
Dave

I can not make out the shot of the text below the bowl. The retailer was HAYDEN & WHILDEN (Augutus Henry Hayden and William G. Wilden) jewelers in Charleston SC, c 1865.

Will suggest the mark is 'HH&Co' for Henry Hebbard & Co. - he and John Polhamus patented the 'Oriental' pattern in 1855 (#D715)...

I believe you are correct! It does look more like an "H" than an "E", and the patent date does appear to be 1855.
Thank you so much, Cheryl!
