WM Rogers and Sheridan Tea sets

Hello, I recently inherited what seems to be two different tea sets. The first one reads "WM Rogers Avon" on the bottom of the coffee pot, tea pot, sugar and creamer. All pieces are also numbered on the bottom as follows "3601, 3602, 3603 and 3604" accordingly. I saw a similar set on a Web Site, but even thou they have the same item numbers and "Avon" and "WM Rogers" written on the bottom, my pieces do not have what seems to be a "rope around the body of the pieces", which I found very weird, becuase they match in everything else, except the body of my pieces is plain.
The second set is comprised of a creamer, sugar and what I think is a Water Pitcher (no lid and too big to be a tea or coffee pot). All pieces have the Sheridan logo on the bottom (crown, S, and shield) and "silver on copper" and are very similar to the WM Rogers Tea set, but these do have like a rope around their body.
My question is: Does anyone have any idea of how old this tea sets are (date)? I think they are circa 1940 (at least the WM Rogers Tea Set), because I found a an Avon Flatware Set by WM Rogers/International Silver on the web which is from 1940, but I am not positive that they belong to the same pattern. Thank you very much (in advance) for your time and help. Best Regards.
Caesar O.
