PATENT 1862 and x. According to Rainwater's book on silver the firm of Henry Hebbard & Co, solid silver manufacturers, is listed in the NYC Directories beginning in 1847. John Polhemus joined the firm at some point prior to 18652. Between 1852-1858, he and hebbard obtained a number of design patents for flatware together. These patents were later used by Shiebler & Co. They also did work for Tiffany & Co until they dissolved possibly as a result of the loss of the Tiffany account due to their purchase of Edward Moore's silver manufacturing company to serve as it's own manufacturing division. Very good condition.
