The International Silver Company centered in Meriden, Conn. was formed in 1898 combining the efforts of several silver companies. To see a list of these companies, along with links to webpages showing their pre-ISC designs in collections, in exhibitions, design catalogues, and historical documentation, see section "B. ISC predecessors and divisions" on the Design Meriden micro-site homepage.


Are you looking to identify an International Silver Company flatware pattern? If so, for 1847 Rogers Bros., we highly recommend initially looking at a 1947 advertisement showing patterns from 1847-1941. For International Sterling, International Stainless and other 1847 Rogers Bros. and ISC flatware patterns, many are illustrated in online advertisements listed below.


Also, to see a range of adverts showing Hollywood celebrity endorsements of ISC / 1847 Rogers Bros. cutlery, linked and online, scroll down to the listings for 1937-1945 advertisements. For adverts showing models featuring fashion design, see 1946-1948 advertisements. Throughout this era, advertisements promote International’s Silver Theater radio program in Hollywood broadcast on CBS, and Ozzie & Harriet.

Extended quote from 1950 annual report


"In a recent LIFE editorial, home furnishings were featured... the choice of a jury of 26 top decorators, designers and buyers. To quote:

Year by year the U. S. has seen a steady rise in the quality of home furnishings made by a growing group of American manufacturers. Their skilled workmen are turning out an increasingly fine finished array of furniture, tableware and home-furnishing accessories.’

’To find out which of these manufacturers are doing the best work, LIFE asked a jury of 26 top decorators, designers and department store buyers to list the best ones on a secret ballot. Then the manufacturers who received the most votes were invited to submit examples of what they considered their best work. They were asked to guide themselves, not by the sales popularity of any item they made, or by its price, but solely by its beauty, its craftsmenship, and the pride with which they made it.’

’ We are proud to say that International Sterling is one of only two lines to be represented— and that RICHELIEU and ROYAL DANISH were chosen— another fine tribute to International Silver Company craftsmen.’" (ISC annual report, 1950)
