Silver and Flatware/RE: Rogers gold plated stainless

Question
I have a 44 pc set of stainless. I don't think the value will be much but  would like an idea of how old it is.I is in a case with green felt like material inside. Case has sticker that says made in China.
The 8 place setting has the following on back of the handles: Rogers(in cursive) Stainless China (Printed).
I believe the pattern is called Dorchester but I really can't find much info on this pattern.
The extra pieces have the same on them except they say Indonesia instead of China. They consist of 2 large spoons (one with holes and one solid), a butter knife and a sugar spoon (I think).
Thank you, any information will be appreciated. I do not currently have a picture but can get one if needed.

Answer
Hello.

It's difficult to say when this set was made. Most brands with Rogers in the name are owned by International Silver Company. They created a number of patterns that were made in China and Korea, starting around 1960. I do not know if this practice continues today.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
