Herman Duhme

Herman Duhme was born in Germany and came to Ohio in 1834. He first advertised a variety store at Main and Walnut Streets in Cincinnati in 1842. Though not a silversmith himself, he employed a number of silversmiths and jewelers and produced a wide range of silver tablewares and jewelry, eventually becoming the most prolific and prominent silver manufacturer in the Midwest. Duhme & Company survived Duhme’s death in 1888, changing ownership and names several times, until it finally closed in 1910.
