I wonder how many salesmen Shielder employed? Based on the abundance & variety of Shiebler silver I suspect there were many salesmen moving a lot of product.

I wonder if the reason we don’t see more Shiebler advertising, sale literature and marketing materials might because the salesmen actually carried and sold the product 'samples' they carried?

THE JEWELERS’ CIRCULAR AND HOROLOGICAL REVIEW
July 1, 1891
pg 47
quote:

THE BOSTON

George W. Shiebler, 8 Liberty Place, New York, has produced a spoon commemorative of Boston, Mass., that is a marvel of beauty. At the top of the handle is seen the dome of the Boston State House, of which the octogenarian poet and essayist, Oliver Wendell Homes, says :

    “Boston State House is the Hub of the Solar system. You couldn’t pry that out of a Boston man if you had the tire of all creation straightened out for a crowbar.”
The handle proper represents the Old Elm. “The old elm on the Common, more ancient than Boston, a remnant of the primeval forest, was blown down in 1876; and its site surrounded by an iron fence is occupied by a young descendant; Ann Hibbens, the witch, was hung from the parent elm in 1656; the Quakers, in 1659; Indian rebels were punished near it; the first fatal duel in Boston occurred under it in 1726; the Sons of Liberty had their meetings here, and hung effigies of Tories on its branches; and Whitefield, Jesse Lee, and other evangelists preached to people beneath it.” The bowl depicts the famous Boston Tea Party—the larges tea party in history, by the way—which is familiar to the youngest schoolchild and hence needs no description. The workmanship displayed in this spoon is beyond criticism. The die work is so perfect, that the minutest details are sharply and accurately defined. Altogether the spoon is a veritable work of art. It is made in tea, orange and coffee sizes.

THE JEWELERS’ CIRCULAR AND HOROLOGICAL REVIEW
July 29, 1891
pg 43
quote:

THE NEW YORK
In contemplating on the greatness of New York City, two stupenduous features present themselves to the mind, the Batholdi Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World, and the Brooklyn Bridge. It is but natural that one of these features should be combined in a design for a spoon to commemorate the Metropolitan City. In the application of one of these features in the design of the spoon produced by Geo. W. Shiebler, 8 Liberty Place, New York, commendable results have been obtained. An accurately modeled miniature representation of Liberty in full relief forms the handle. She holds aloft the torch, which is united to the bowl. Within the bowl is a representation of the arms of the city of New York, and the name New York, while at the top of the handle are the arms of the State of New York, the eagle above the sea and motto. Excelsior. The workmanship exercised in this spoon has been so careful that the handle is almost symmetrical, while all the lines and details of the figure area perfect reproduction of the statue. This spoon is made in tea and oranges sizes only.
