The Jewelers Review
June 1899

Joseph T. Homan
of the Homan Silver Plate Company

The consolidation of the silver plated ware industries of the United States brings into prominence the Homan Silver Plate Company of Cincinnati, one of the largest hollow ware houses in the West, and one of the very few standard concerns not absorbed by the International Silver Company. The business was established by Henry Homan in 1847. After its founder's death the business; passed partially from the control of the Homan family, but after a few years Joseph T. Homan. whose portrait we gave on this page, wishing to enter the business world. purchased the interests of those outside the family, and the original firm name of Homan & Co. was continued as manufacturers of Britannia and plated ware till the firm was incorporated under its present title in 1895. Under M r. Homan's management the history of the firm has been one of continued progress. While plated ware had been made to a limited extent by the old firm, Mr. Homan soon saw that it would be profitable to broaden out in this direction. Gradually line after line was adopted and developed. until now the company makes almost everything in the way of hollowware. Last fall a commodious building was added to the plant for the offices and salesrooms of the company, and a year ago a salesroom was opened at No. 32 Park Place, New York City. Several domestic salesmen are employed by the house, which has also taken up seriously the invasion of the foreign markets. There are resident representatives engaged in exploiting the principal markets abroad, and the domestic and foreign trade of the house is constantly on the increase. Although the subject of this sketch. Joseph T. Homan. is still low in his thirties, he has proven more than equal to the cares he has been called upon to carry for a number of years. Possessed of keen faculties, his discriminating mercantile sense and manufacturing ability have been developed by virtue of his exacting position. He was horn in Cincinnati, and is to-day one of the brightest and most successful business men of the Ohio Valley. Through his efforts. coupled with those of his brother Louis. The Homan Silver Plate Company holds its place of prominence among the foremost houses in their line in the United States.
