SILVER ADVERTISING:
ROGERS & HAMILTON CO

The firm was founded in 1886 taking over the spoon business of Holmes, Booth & Haydens. The president was Charles Alfred Hamilton who had travelled for Rogers & Bros for some years. William H. Rogers, secretary and stakeholder, wasn't a silversmith and undoubtedly participated to the business to add "Rogers" to the company name.
Rogers Brothers were the main and best renowned American silverplate makers and many other firms, often having no link with them, were founded to take advantage of the name 'Rogers' for their business.
The firm was active at Waterbury (CT) with branch offices in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Baltimore and Philadelphia.
Rogers & Hamilton was one of the original companies forming International Silver Company in 1898.
