Well, you aren't giving us much to go on, and this piece is likely 19th century, but we will try:-).

Rogers, Smith & Co. was founded in 1857 and merged with the Meriden Britannia Company in 1863. The trademarks for the company continued to be used for many years after the merger, however. Many pieces of identical silverplate holloware can be found with either a Meriden Britannia Co. or a Rogers, Smith & Co. trademark.

Most of the Rogers, Smith & Co. trademarks incorporate a place name, either Hartford, New Haven, West Meriden or Meriden, CT. The place name can be used to date the piece.

Your rough description sounds like a tilting ice water pitcher. The pitcher pivots to tip over and pour into a matching goblet, which stands on a little platform, right? Some even have multiple goblets on multiple platforms. In good condition, these pieces tend to be very desirable.

Anyway, if you can tell us more about the piece, we might be able to help more. Otherwise, I hope this much at least helps somewhat.
