J.H.Johnston & Co. was a high end silversmiths and jewelry firm, located at 17, Union Square, New York.
Started in 1844, the company specialized in highly decorative silverware and novelties, including a line of souvenir spoons commemorating notable New York figures.
The coffee spoons included Rip Van Winkle, Peter Stuyvesant, and a rendering of the Headless Horseman based on Darley’s illustrations.
The handle of the spoon was featured a likeness of Ichabod Crane. J.H.Johnston sadly went out of business in 1910.
