Silver and Flatware/Identify pattern of silver plated flatware?

Question
Silver plated pattern2
Silver plated pattern2  
I have a 50 piece set of flatware that has the following identification inscription on the back:  "Wm. A. Rogers Silver Overlaid  Oneida Ltd."

It consists of 12 knives, dinner forks, teaspoons and tablespoons, along with one sugar spoon and one butter knife, for a total of 50 pieces in the set.  I do not have the original box or any other identification to go along with it, and it is about 50 years old.

I've tried sites such as Replacements.com, Oneida.com, and other silver plated matching service sites, but none had the pattern.  Of course, there is always the possibility that I missed something at those sites, so that is why I am asking you.

During my searches, I found that the price for silver plated flatware is about $0.50 per piece, but depends on the scarcity of the pattern.  This is what I am trying to determine, the scarcity of this pattern.  I have attached a few photos which show a slow scroll from the utensil to the end, then ending in a circle scroll, and above it is a rosette pattern.  The rest is plain.

Any help you can provide in determining the pattern will aid me in determining a price for the set.

Thanks in advance,
Bob

Answer
Hi, Bob.

The light reflection in the picture obscures some of the pattern so I can't be certain but the pattern resembles Flowertime: http://www.replacements.com/webquote/OHSFLT.htm#493007 . How do the pictures at Replacements compare with your set?

If I am correct, this pattern is in the group priced at fifty cents to a dollar for place pieces, maybe a bit more for serving pieces.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Jim
