Question
I have a set of R & B lyric flatware with 6 each: tablespoon, teaspoon, dinner fork and knives. Additionally is a butter knife and sugar spoon. All in very good condition. What is the value? I am interested in selling. Thank you.

Answer
Hello.

I am not aware of a pattern named "Lyric" by Reed & Barton. However, Gorham made a "Lyric" pattern. Check out this site: http://sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Msc/SterlSP.html

There is an article in the list below that will help you calculate a value range for your set. In the meantime, you can get a ballpark value by looking at recent sales on eBay. Here's an example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gorham-Sterling-Pat-1940-1941-Lyric-Pattern-4-pc-Setting . This sale was for a place setting with different pieces from yours but the ballpark price for yours would be similar, maybe a bit higher because of the tablespoon.

Best wishes,

Jim

P.S. If I have identified the wrong, "Lyric", send a picture of a fork.
