Web site visitor Paul Benner of Savannah, GA writes:
I ran across an article regarding a Columbian shield (The E-Sylum: Volume 15, Number 36, August 26, 2012, Article 10).
I have one hanging by my front door. It was created by my great great grandfather Frederick Mayer, a noted Pittsburgh artist and
sculptor. The shield was indeed sold by Heeren Brothers of Pittsburgh. The shield was cast by Mayer's brothers who had a foundry in
Stuttgart Germany. I know of one other located in Fairbanks Alaska.
Thanks! This is great information. Paul kindly forwarded a photo of his shield. -Editor
