Rogers Brothers is NOT all Sterling Make sure that you are aware that NOT all sets and pieces by Rogers Brothers are sterling. Sometimes people automatically assume that old silver pieces are sterling, but silver plating techniques have been around since the 1800s.

Ornamental or decorative designs were registered for copyright under a series of Acts of Parliament (see table headings at section 6).
Registration protected the decorative elements of the design from being copied and manufactured without permission.
Hi Patsy and Tim, Since you both have 1847 Rogers Brothers IS Silver, I wanted to address your questions together.
You may be sure that an object bearing this mark is English sterling silver made after 1719.
This helped to protect the consumer, for if it was determined that the silver object was not actually pure enough to be marked as silver, the culprit could be found and punishment could be meted out.
As silver objects made before 1700 are quite rare, I shall restrict my comments to those made after that date.
Registration was not compulsory, so many designs will not be found in our records.

Since many cycles of alphabets can be written in different ways (A, a, A, etc.), many years can be covered. Since many of those craftsmen were equal to England’s finest, their influence in design has lasted to the present day.
