Silver and Flatware/Rockford S P Flatware


I have 3 serving spoons. On the back it says Rockford S P Co 5* (star). I am curious as to when they were made, I believe they were owned by my grandparents.

Hi. Maureen.

I can't tell the exact year of manufacture. I can tell you that Rockford Silver Plate Co. was in business 1882-1925. After that, the name changed to Sheets-Rockford Silver Plate Co. and continued until 1956. They may have continued to use the Rockford marks even after the change in company name.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
