"In the summer of 1858, [the firm of Rogers & Brother was established]... for many years the plant in Waterbury was considered the most complete silverplating production facility in the country. Their line of flatware was stamped (Star) Rogers & Bro. A less expensive grade was trademarked R & B (Rogers & Bro.)... [Rogers & Brother became part of the International Silver Company in 1898. On 1 January 1938,] the original factory was utilized until the equipment was moved to Meriden and combined with other factories located there."

— Edmund P. Hogan in An American heritage: A book on the International Silver Company (1977), p. 162. (See entry below.)

"ROGERS & BROTHER, Waterbury: Asa H. Rogers was the first man of the name of Rogers to experiment and acquire a practical knowledge of the art of Electro Silver Plating. He began in Hartford, Conn., in 1846. He, with his younger brother, removed to Waterbury in 1858, and organized the present firm of Rogers & Brother, whose Silver Plate Manufactory and Office we illustrate. From small beginning the business has been developed by the Company, until now their annual product is close to $1,000,000 in value of flat ware alone. This Company confine themselves to goods of first quality only, never having made a spoon of low grade. Their name (or trademark), *Rogers & Bro., A1, is a guarantee of excellence, and of course their wares are deservedly popular. Incorporated in 1859. D. B. Hamilton, President and Treasurer; George Rockwell, Secretary.” (See source above.)
