Question
Hello there,
I have about 30 pounds of flatware, and most of it is stamped "ROGERS  STERLING  I S     Sculptured Beauty.

Do you think this is solid Sterling silver?

Answer
Hi, Jason.

Sculptured Beauty is a sterling pattern from International Silver under the Rogers brand. Most pieces should be all sterling. Knives probably only have a shell of sterling on the handles and blades made of something else such as stainless steel. Some serving pieces may have similar construction.

If you would like an offer for your set, send an email to GeorgiaSilver@bellsouth.net. Include an inventory of specific pieces and their lengths.

Best wishes,

Jim
