Orange L. W. Howell, a spirited person of 157 years who occasionally moonlights in luxury retail, lives passionately in New York City's East Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

Orange L. W. Howell is my name and @ 157 years old I can assure you I speak with opinions in their various shades of gray. Black n' white thinking is fools talk, easily palatable for most folks, but then most don't live past 90 before they can't think right. About the name +color, "William & Mary of Orange" I was born in 1861 the year the Civil War began. Eighth generation American, Quaker, Hoosier, Welsh, originally a Farmer. I grew up Henry County, Blountsville, Indiana. Parents were Hilary Howell and Fanny Bedwell-Howell, and my first lovely wife was named Ella Chamness, we had four children. Everyone is in the ground.

Thanks to my old friends at Perfect Circle, those Teetor inventors and Wilbur Wright  who was always coming back to his birth place...P.C. created a special invention for me, knowing I was a seventh son of a seventh son...So I can go forever into the future flying, just can't take me back, only forward. My stomping grounds are the streets of Manhattan, New York City... especially the East Village. The neighborhood spirit is most like the home in my heart or at least it was in the 80's...♥

Daughters of the American Revolution (D.A.R.) Snowflake Ornament



Orange HOWELL’s latest custom commission is a brilliant union of modern American craftsmanship and historic inspiration. Frank Lloyd Wright’s distinct architectural style inspired the form, which is centered by a sparkling medallion of the D.A.R. seal highlighted in sapphire blue Swarovski crystal accents.

The D.A.R. Snowflake Ornament celebrates America’s Founding Mothers, and Orange HOWELL’s owner, Paula Zanger’s own family heritage. Orange Howell is the given name of her great, great grandfather, son of Fanny Bedwell and Hilary Howell.  Paula is a direct descendant (on her Mother’s side), of John Howland a passenger and signer of Mayflower Compact who helped found Plymouth Colony, Robert Bedwell one of the six delegates to the first meeting of the Pennsylvania Assembly in Philadelphia in 1703, and American Revolutionary Patriots, Benjamin Barnard and Barachiah Macy.

The D.A.R. Diamond Snowflake Ornament is available exclusively through the D.A.R. to its members.
