Answer
Hello.

This specific Rogers brand is now owned by Oneida. Based on the markings on the set, it looks like the pieces are made of silver plate. "555" probably is the model or pattern number.

I'm not familiar with this particular pattern and could not find recent sales. However, many silver plate sets like this sell in the range of $10 to $50. The price is highly dependent upon condition and desirability of the pattern. Larger pieces like punch bowls may sell for more. You might review actual sales of Oneida bowls on eBay to see what similar bowls sold for.

Best wishes,

Jim
