- Pattern: Columbia
- Made in USA
- Antique: 1893
- Details: A beautiful ladle in the very old “Columbia” pattern by Rogers & Bro AI. This 19th century design is extremely ornate, with so many different swirls, shells, loops and textures, it’s difficult to describe, just beautiful! To make it even more beautiful it has a gold washed bowl! It was designed by George Rockwell in 1893 for Rogers & Bro. Although it’s designed for serving gravy, we could see it being used for many other sauces, both sweet and savory. It is stamped on back, a little worn but it reads: Rogers&Bro AI”. Great as a hostess/host gift, or for someone who appreciates vintage servingware, or perfect for a collector. Gorgeous on a buffet table!

Rogers & Bro AI was established in 1858 at Waterbury by Asa Jr. and Simeon Rogers. Until 1874 the firm was only a flatware manufacturer. It was one of the original companies becoming part of International Silver Company in 1898
1893 is sort of a grim year in the USA – Here are just a few things that happened that year: 1) In May the New York Stock Exchange crashed, starting a depression. 2) Lizzi Borden is found not guilty of murdering her parents. 3) The Sea Islands hurricaine hits Charleston, Savannah and the Sea Islands, killing thousands. On the other hand, this was the year Kathy Lee Bates wrote the song “America the Beautiful” and women in Colorado are given the right to vote. Both Mae West (acress) and Dorothy Parker (writer) are born this year.
