Question
I have a serving spoon and a few other pieces of Rogers Bros. flatware with XLL on the back, no pattern name on the back. It's a heavy piece with a rather plain design on the spoon but does have a design in the middle at the bottom of the spoon.  It has an indentation around the outside of the spoon and some type of design on the back of the spoon.  Can you tell me anything about this?  Thank You! Jean

Answer
Hello.

I really can't tell what pattern this might be. The XLL indicates silver plate construction.

You might review the silver plate patterns here to see if you can spot a match: http://sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Msc/SterlSP.html . I'd check all the companies with "Rogers" in the name. You might also check International Silver Company which took over this brand in 1898.

Once you know the pattern, other information will be available on the Internet most likely. Or you can ask a follow up question.

Best wishes,

Jim
