(WorldKings.org) Mary Millicent Abigail Rogers (February 1, 1902 - January 1, 1953), better known as Millicent Rogers, was a socialite, fashion icon, and art collector.

She was the granddaughter of Standard Oil tycoon Henry Huttleston Rogers, and an heiress to his wealth. Rogers is notable for having been an early supporter and enthusiast of Southwestern-style art and jewelry, and is often credited for its reaching a national and international audience. She is still credited today as an influence on major fashion designers.

Her silver collection, showcases the breadth and depth of Rogers’ collecting habits. Along with famous American makers like Tiffany & Co., Gorham, and Kirk & Son, Rogers possessed many fine 18th and 19th century pieces from Britain.

Georgian Era

The Georgian designation extends to items created during the reigns of George I, George II, and George III. At this time, the Gothic Revival style of architecture emerged. Furniture from the period featured straight lines and low-relief ornamentation.

Victorian Era

Queen Victoria ruled the United Kingdom from 1837 until 1901. During her reign, politics and industry pushed forward, most notably in the form of the Industrial Revolution. Authors Charles Dickens and the Brontë sisters wrote during this time. Furniture was often dark, heavily ornamented, and inspired by previous eras.

Edwardian Era

Where Victorian decorative arts were heavy and dark, Edwardian styles favored light pastel colors and floral designs. Similar to the Belle Époque in France, the Edwardian era reveals the influence of Art Nouveau.
