  1. Love your blog as there is so much confusion to the Rogers Silversmiths. But who is W. F. Rogers? And would you know what the A1 means after the stamping?

  2. I found your information about Meridan Cutlery Company extremely helpful - I couldn't find anything else about the company except postings on eBay. I have an antler-handled carving set I am trying to date and I believe it was made by them. the end-caps on the handles are marked 'STERLING'. I was wondering if the successor company that took over Meridan in 1866 (?) or so continued to manufacture carving sets using the 'Meridan Cutlery Company" and little anvil stamped on the blade or if they had their own stamp? That would help me narrow the date down. Thanks!

  3. I found your blog after I purchased a silver-plated ladle with 1847 rogers Bros A1 w/stamp. I've gone through most of your information and was unable to find the design name for it. It's very simple. The decoration is on the stem of the spoon and it's little round bumps close together but not touching. Can anyone identify it? Thanks.

  4. hey - hope this finds you. came across your blog while researching a boxed set of silverplate knives and forks, 6 of each. outer surface of box top has text "The Wm. Rogers Mfg. Co." in a curved line, and a straight line of text "hartford, conn". the inner surface of box lid (it is a hinged box) has a colorful descriptive strip including image of wm. rogers. the knives show no mark while the fork handles say (anchor) ROGERS (anchor) 12. is there an email address to which i could send photos? peace. penney file
