Question
I have sliver flatware made for TWA, trams world airlines, during the 1950-60s, by international silver co.
Is it a collectors item and where do I go to find its worth and pattern?

Answer
Hi, Pam.

I assume this set is made of silver plate and does not have much value based solely on silver content. However, as you pointed out, they might have some value to collectors of TWA items. I don't know where to send you but you might review web sites that specialize in souvenir spoons. You might be able to ask a question on those sites about collectors of items like this.

Also, check this article: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/an-interview-with-aviation-and-airline- .

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,

Jim
