According to Dorothy Rainwater's Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers, it was the William A. Rogers Ltd. company of New York, who used the 1881 Rogers trademark, and after 1910. Rogers is probably the single most important (and confusing) name in American electroplated silver. Many different companies used this name in one way or another, and it became a "sterling standard" for plated silver during the 19th century. The 1881 is not a date--various Rogers firms used dates as part of their trademarks. "1847 Rogers" is the most famous of these--but this was an entirely different company.
