Shiebler & Co.
Birth Place: Baltimore, Maryland
During Shiebler’s youth, he served as a messenger boy for Western Union Telegraph Company, and served as a carrier for the Union Army during the American Civil War. In 1876, he founded his New York silversmith firm after he acquired Coles & Reynolds and began producing gold chains. An astute businessman, Shiebler secured all the components necessary to manufacture silver on a large scale: the factory of the successor to Albert Coles, Morgan Morgans, Jr. and the dies of John Polhamus, Albert Coles, Theodore Evans & Co., and Henry Hebbard. Shiebler produced flatware patterns using these old dies as well as drafting and manufacturing new designs. One of his more recognizable patterns is the medallion based “Etruscan,” introduced around 1880. Shiebler was instrumental in introducing “Homeric” style jewelry and flatware to the general public, and his participation in the art nouveau style is apparent in his “Flora” line, patented in 1889. He went on to serve as president and director of the New York Jewelers’ Association. George W. Shielber & Co. was dissolved in 1910 after filing for bankruptcy, and was subsequently purchased by Gorham.
