Silver and Flatware/1847 ROGERS BROS

I have a 10" latticed plate with the markings "1847 ROGERS BROS EPNS WMMTS P73". It does not have the mark "IS" anywhere on it. Can you identify this?


Hi, Leonard.

This is a silver plate tray with "white metal mounts" (probably non-silver mounts). "P73" probably is the model number. It may have been made before 1898 when International Silver took over this brand or it could have been made a few years after that while International still used the old marks. "1847" represents the founding date of the Rogers company.

i have not seen a plate like this before but it probably is a little more valuable than the typical silver plate piece like this.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
