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.

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

Pair Schulz & Fischer, San Francisco,

While many 19th century San Francisco flatware designs appear to be derivative of Eastern manufacturers, and some are all but outright copies, "Templar" aka "Five Star" by Schulz & Fischer is original to that company.

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

Rare Mark, P.L. Taylor & Jones,

Multiple sources list silversmith and merchant Pardon L. Taylor, as born in Providence, Rhode Island, 1824, and working in Brooklyn, New York, where he died in 1860.

No reference, however, documents the "P.L. Taylor & Jones" mark on this large, 8 7/8" long, significant weight, 1.6 T. oz., "Tipt End" table or serving spoon, suggesting it was, like the man himself, a short-lived enterprise, and thus rare.
