HISTORY AND MARKS
The firm was organized by Samuel Simpson in 1866. In 1878 Simpson made an agreement with William Rogers Jr to supervise the manufacture and marketing of Simpson, Hall, Miller & Co Rogers "Eagle" brand.
The "Eagle" was a brief duration business (1862 - c. 1865) managed by William Henry Rogers (often identified as William Rogers Jr, he died in 1896) after the retirement of his father in 1861. In 1872, when the William Rogers Manufacturing Co was incorporated, the Rogers were no longer associated to the firm and in the 1880s the firm had a bitter controversy with William Rogers Jr. about the right to use William Rogers name.
Thanks to this contract, Wallingford factory manufactured under the name "Rogers" large quantities of electro-plated table ware in competition with William Rogers Mfg Co.
The manufacturing of sterling silverware started in 1895 and in 1898 Simpson, Hall, Miller & Co entered in the International Silver Co. The Wallingford's factory became International's sterling center.
