Silver and Flatware/Silver flatware
I have 2 forks, Elton 1940, international silver co. By Wm. Rogers. Has DAL stamp on back. What is that and what is their worth?
4 Demi spoons, Monarch 1907, National silver co. I cannot find a listing of their worth
Since these pieces do not have the word, "Sterling", on them, I assume they are all made of silver plate. See the article in the list below that discusses sterling vs silver plate. Also, see the article in the list below that discusses the value of silver plate flatware. It covers your forks.
The demitasse spoons might have a slightly higher value because they are more unusual and might have some value to someone who already owns a set of this pattern.
If you would like to find buyers of silver, you’ll find ads from such businesses on my blog site: http://www.SilverChatter.com . Look for sellers as well because they have to buy their silver somewhere. You may have to reload the screen a few times to see all the ads.
