HOMAN MANUFACTURING COMPANY

The firm was founded in Cincinnati in 1847 by Henry Homan and Asa F. Flagg as manufacturers of Britannia ware under the name Flagg & Homan.
Homan family managed the business as Homan & Co until 1887, gradually changing from the manufacture of pewter, Britannia metal and German silver to electroplated silverware.
Around 1896 the name of the firm was Homan Silver Plate Company, which was succeeded (between 1904 and 1915) by Homan Manufacturing Company. The firm went out of business in 1941.
