Historical Note

Wm. Rogers & Son was a trademark used by the International Silver Company in silverplate. Various independent New England silversmiths came together and formed the International Silver Company in 1898. Other companies were bought and it soon became a large industrial concern. In 1984, Katy Industries bought International and changed its name to Wallace International Silversmiths. Two years later a subsidiary of Syratech purchased the company.
