Silver and Flatware/Wm Rogers& son victorian baby spoons


Hi,  I just found 10 Wm Rogers&son IS silver victorian rose spoons at a garage sale.  I don't know if they are berry spoons or baby spoons.   They were also mixed in with about 10 very old state spoons.  Do you know if there is a value to the spoons? Thanks Linda


"IS" on the back of the spoons represents International Silver Company which took over this Rogers brand in 1898. I believe they introduced the Victorian Rose pattern in 1954. These pieces are made of silver plate. See the article in the list below that discusses sterling vs silver plate. I doubt the Victorian Rose pieces have much value. See the article in the list below that discusses the value of silver plate flatware.

I'm assuming the "state" spoons are souvenir spoons. If these are made of sterling, they will have some value based on the silver content alone. They could be more valuable if they are highly sought after by collectors. I'm not an expert on souvenir spoons but these is an article that will lead to other reference sites: .

You might look at actual sales of similar items on eBay for both sets of spoons to get verification of value. Here's an example: .

Best wishes,
