Hit some good yard sales this morning and found a really old RW bowl from the Coleman House. CH was one of the earliest hotels built in Asbury Park, NJ. CH was built some time around 1875 and was the largest hotel in Asbury Park at the time. A.M. Sexton was the proprietor at the time, and his name is on the bowl. I didn't know they put proprietors names on RW back then.
No maker, but says Steinbach Company, Asbury Park, NJ. Steinbach was THE dept. store back then and has been around since the late 1800s. I wonder who would have made the bowl?
It's a good entry for the IDwiki which I'll get to hopefully soon.
Any thoughts on this?
