The Howard Sterling Company of Providence, Rhode Island is to be distinguished from Howard & Company of New York, both operating in the late 19th to early 20th centuries.

Many of Howard's lines are identified with successor firms Roger Williams Silver and ultimately Mount Vernon, and that is the case with "Josephine," the pattern on this 10 3/8" long, 3.2 T. oz., platter, stuffing, or basting spoon.

Presumably named after Napoleon's empress consort, the design features bold acanthus... Click for details

It has a garland of flowers at the top of the handle, with an open space below this that in this instance is monogrammed "CNB" in fine script. The lower two thirds... Click for details
