Silver and Flatware/1847 Rogers bros silver flatware set Pattern - Daffodil



I have been seeing mixed answers about this particular set.  Is this flatware  subject set silver plated or sterling silver?  

Thank you


I have only encountered a silver plate version. This Rogers brand was bought by International Silver Company in 1898 and they continued to use the brand for many years. In 1950, International introduced Daffodil as a silver plate pattern.

Since about 1870, virtually any sterling piece manufactured in the U.S. will have the word, "Sterling", on it. A few might have "925" which represents 92.5% silver content, the standard for sterling.

Best wishes,



There was also an 1891 version of Daffodil by Rogers. It was silver plate as well.
