George W Shiebler founded his firm in New York in 1876. Within several years, Shiebler moved his operations to Brooklyn, New York. He produced high quality sterling flat-ware, mixed metal hollow-ware, novelties, souvenir spoons and high fashion jewelry creations. The company was dissolved in 1910 and Shiebler went on to work for Gorham Manufacturing.

This fantastic sterling bar brooch, circa 1895, incorporates the aesthetic Japanesque design tastes popular during this period of time. The flat bar is decorated with an applied musa basjoo or Japanese banana tree on one end and a Japanese red-crowned crane on the other. The brooch measures 2" in length, 7/8" in width and is equipped with a 'C' clasp, the earliest type of clasp used on brooches mainly prior to 1900. It is stamped with the Shiebler company logo of an 'S' within a circle and a wing on either side; 'Sterling' and '1406' the pattern design number. No condition issues with wonderful old patina. A work of art for the serious collector of fine period jewelry.
