The Markings on Rogers Brother Silver
The “1847” in 1847 Rogers Brothers Silver is not the manufacturer date. This is the founding date of “Rogers Brothers” that they include in the hallmark of all their silverware. The “IS” stands for “International Silver” who has owned Rogers since 1898.
Neither of these markings gives any indication about the purity or value of the silver.
Rogers Brothers is not all Sterling Silver. Make sure that you are aware that not all sets and pieces by Rogers Brothers are sterling silver. Some pieces are silver plate. Sometimes people automatically assume that old silver pieces are sterling, but keep in mind that silver plating techniques have been around since the 1800s.
