In 1891, at the age of 20, Frank Schofield started an apprenticeship at The Gorham Mfg. In 1899, after finishing his apprenticeship at Gorham, Frank Schofield moved to Baltimore, Maryland. After working for four years for Charles C. Stieff at The Baltimore Sterling Silver Company in Baltimore (aka The Stieff Company), he struck off on his own, founding The Baltimore Silversmiths Manufacturing Company in 1903. Later in 1905, he partnered with a K. Herr, and the company name changed to Heer-Schofield. In 1928, the company name was changed to FRANK M. After Frank Schofields death in 1947 , his wife Bertha ran the company until 1965.
This was rare in a day when the silver business was a predominately male industry. Bertha herself was an accomplished silversmith, learning the trade after her marriage to Frank. The Stieff Company continued to make Schofield's patterns until 1977.
The Stieff Company itself is long gone. Kirk & Son in 1979, changing the name of the company to Kirk-Stieff Company. All Arts, Crafts, Collectibles, Antiques and Vintage products are non - returnable.
