    We just got all of this today for $20. There are 30-40 pieces that came in wooden box. This is the first time I have owned anything like this and know NOTHING about silver or flatware. (Pardon my verbage ahead of time, as I am not familiar with the official terms of these products either.) Please note that I have not cleaned these yet, as I wasnt sure if I should.....

    It all came in an awesome wooden box labled GORHAM which I will post seperately.

    FIRST PHOTO:
    group is marked (anchor)ROGERS(anchor)DeluxePlate Original Rogers Precious

    1 large serving spoon
    8 regular sized eating forks
    1 long fork
    6 regular sized eating spoons
    1 gravy ladle
    1 regular sized spoon, rounder than the others
    1 jam knife

    SECOND PHOTO:
    6 large eating spoons that are marked (eagle)WMROGERS(star) sectional [IS]

    the following are the same pattern, but marked slightly different. (eagle)WMROGERS(star) [IS] , with the M underlined, doesnt say "sectional" on it but the pattern is the same as the 6 large spoons:

    2 forks
    1 spoon
    3 butter knives with the same pattern but only marked "stainless", no brand marking.

    THIRD PHOTO:
    1 fork marked WM ROGERS & SON [IS] Victorian Rose
    1 butter knife marked W.M.A. ROGERS STAINLESS
    1 large slotted spoon marked HOLMES & EDWARDS [IS] DEEPSILVER
    1 long spoon marked only with the word COMMUNITY

    FOURTH PHOTO:
    Is a close up of all the different labels in the lot.

    Any date or value estimate (separately or together) on these items is greatly appreciated. Being a mixed lot and with me having no knowledge on this topic, I have a lot of work ahead of me to figure them out! From there we will decide to keep them or sell them. Dont forget to check out the box in my next post.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANY HELP!

      Hi Wruthie! "IS" stands for International Silver. You can read more about it here: http://www.silvercollection.it/INTERNATIONALSILVERCO.html. :-)

      You can find a lot of those pieces on Replacements, with dates of production and values.

      Silver plated flatware is very common even if old because it was mass produced. Unfortunately it has little value in general. I buy and sell these items frequently, but they are a hard sell. Also online prices in most cases are not what you will get unless the items are in near new condition. Ebay is full of this stuff, individually and in sets. The large serving utensils are often worth more than the fork, knives and table spoons. You can polish these to make them more presentable. I like to use Wright's Silver Cream, it removes tarnish and polishes without damaging the silver. Cool find though. Here is the link to another fun site for looking up silverware. http://sterlingflatwarefashions.com/SPPatterns/WmRogers.html
