I need help dating silverware if you can.
The stamp reads

Rockford S.P. Co.

I know it probably has no monetary value, however it is priceless for my wife's family. I just want to be able to date it to the generation in her family that used it .

Thank you so much for your help
I'm sending a few photos.


Rockford existed under that name during the window, 1882-1925.

It's sometimes difficult to tell the pattern by examining a knife. Forks and teaspoons are better. However, this pattern might be Valada also known as Creton (introduced in 1897). Or it might be this pattern known by three different names: Fenwick, Pearl and Lancaster (introduced in 1898).

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
