Wm. Rogers & Son Silverplated Antique Break Away Candelabra Victorian Rose For Sale
Rogers Brothers Silver dates back to the early 19th century. The brothers were known for the high quality of their Rogers candlesticks and when they felt they had perfected the electroplating process in 1847 they marked their Rogers candlesticks with their name. Soon after the company became a household name. Their most popular line perhaps was the 1847 Rogers Bros. flatware. Rogers Bros. and their Rogers candlesticks eventually became part of the Meriden Britannia company. The Meriden Britannia company absorbed dozens of other silverware makers in the area and expanded its operation overseas, after which it became known as the International Silver Company.
This elaborate piece is very heavy, and quite beautiful. It stands at about 12.5 inches tall. The top half detaches from the base/ stem area. Please message me for any questions, and I'd be happy to answer.
