If you are interested in a little history on the American Silver Company and the Wm. Rogers Silver Company, see the two summaries provided below. American Silver Company History. The company was founded in Bristol, Conn in the 1857. At this time the concern known as the Holmes & Tuttle Mfg. Maker of silver plated flatware was taken over by the Bristol Brass Co. And from 1857 until 1900. After this, it was operated as the silverware department of the Bristol Brass Co. In 1900, the Bristol Brass Co. Incorporated the silver department under Connecticut State laws as the American Silver Co. The Bristol Brass Co. Owned the entire stock of the American Silver Co. Until 1913, when the distribution of the stock was made to the stockholders of the company. Since 1900, the company has extended its line very considerably. It marketed its products as “World Brand Silver” and became well known for this label and marketing phrase. The home office was located in Bristol, Conn. With offices in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. This concern manufactures fine table cutlery and high grade silver-plated , sterling silver, and nickel silver flatware. The New York office was opened in 1901 and the office in Chicago in 1902 and in San Francisco in 1910. They had several features about their silverplate that they say makes the stand out above their competitors. The actually manufactured the base steel metal of their products themselves rather than purchasing it from the large mills. This gave them complete control over the process insuring its quality and that it meet their high standards. In addition, they indicated that their special plating process left at least 50% more silver on their silverplate flatware as any of their competitors. They claimed that when their products are compared with their competitors that it “will absolutely be assigned the highest grade obtainable”. Indeed recent testing in the 2010′s of their silverplate frequently comes up indicating that it is sterling silver due to their heavy electroplating techniques. However, it is NOT sterling silver; it is simply heavily plated silverplate which, sometimes causes errors in the testing process. The firm continued successful operation through the depression years before becoming a part of the large conglomerate International Silver Company in 1935. This firm continues to operate today as a part of the Oneida organization. William A Rogers Silver Company History. William Hazen Rogers (1801 to 1873) was a well-known American silversmith whose work and name have survived to the present day. Rogers–together with his two brothers and, later, his son–was responsible for more than 100 patterns of silver and silver-plated cutlery and serving dishes. Rogers partnered with other silversmiths at times, and his company and trademarks were eventually taken over by larger companies. The number of companies using the Rogers name is countless. The men managing the various “Rogers” companies sometimes were linked by family relationships but often this was not the case. Companies with this name were created, merged, separated in an endless succession of intertwined relationships. The William A Rogers Silver Company was founded in the 1890s by Wm. The firm succeeded the Niagara Silver Co. 1904 and was then bought by Simeon L. During this period the firm was an Ontario corporation active in New York and North Hampton, MA, when it was bought by the Oneida organization in 1929. This makes dating the production date of an individual piece very difficult. The Oneida, Corporation is currently one of the two largest producers of Silverplate in world.
