The Golden Rule Marble was created nearly a century ago by Jesse Shwayder, co-founder and president of the Samsonite Corporation. However, these treasured keepsakes went out of production about 50 years ago.
Carrying the Legacy Forward
In 2014, Vallmar & Co., a family-owned company from Stow, Ohio started manufacturing the new Golden Rule Marble. Headed by Vall Iliev, Vallmar & Co. is a product development company that has been engineering and developing new products since 1984.
The new Golden Rule Marble exclusively patented by Vallmar & Co. was larger and even more beautiful than the original, with a new heft and luminescence but the same inspirational message it first carried.
"The descendants of Jesse Shwayder continue to promote The Golden Rule with the promotion of the "Do Unto Others" motto and through our life practices. Our family would like to thank Vallmar Studios for helping keep the legacy of The Golden Rule Marble alive. Information about Jesse Shwayder and his great grandchildren can be found at: shortmountaindistillery.com” Billy Kaufman Great Great ,Great Grandson of Jesse Shwayder."
