Silver - Paul Revere

Paul Revere (1734-1818) was an American silversmith & a patriot in the American Revolution. While Revere struggled as a merchant, his success as a silversmith enabled him to pursue & leverage more advanced technological developments for the purposes of mass production. Rolling mills greatly improved the productivity of his silver shop & enabled his business to move further away from manufacturing high-end customized products in order to focus on the production of a more standardized set of goods
