1847 Rogers Brothers Advertisment for the Charter Oak Pattern from 1907

 This is an advertisement made by the International Silver Company to promote their Charter Oak pattern. This is a very popular silverplate pattern and is highly sought after. While this advertisement only shows standard flatware pieces Charter Oak was made into a variety of interesting serving pieces. 

"The Charter Oak pattern, as will be seen by the illustration, possesses an unusual degree of character. The oak leaf and acorn are combined in a graceful design that lends itself readily to the somewhat unusual finish—a combination of Bright and French Grey. Even thus early it is evident that the Charter Oak is to be one of the most popular patterns. We make a full line. We should advise that orders be placed early in order to avoid delay.
