IC above a mullet, London, 1692






  Of heavy gauge silver, the deep round cup with a weighted slightly flattened ovoid base engraved with contemporary initials stippled IB , the side with an 18th c. coat of arms  for the Rogers Family :

The arms as engraved upon this William & Mary English Sterling Silver Tumbler Cup by IC hallmarked London 1692 are upon the balance of probability and without any evidence to the contrary those that pertain to a branch of the family of Rogers. They may be blazoned as follows:

Arms: Argent a chevron (….?....) between three bucks trippant (….?....)


Although the arms engraved on this particular piece are not hatched so as to indicate the tinctures,

it may be presumed that the field of the arms is argent,

and in consequence they belong to an unidentified gentleman of the Rogers family.

Given that there a number of families of Rogers who bear these arms with an argent field

 but whose chevrons and bucks are differently tinctured,

 it is difficult at the present distance in time to pinpoint exactly which

branch of the family at one time was in possession of this cup.  

Such Rogers’ families are fairly well spread throughout midland and southern England,

 from Cornwall in the West Country to the Counties of Gloucester, Worcester, Shropshire in the midlands,

to Essex, Kent, Middlesex and the City of London to the east.
