Question
Daffodil 1847 Rogers Bros IS fork bracelet
Daffodil 1847 Rogers B  
Hello! I inherited a Rogers Bros 1847 Daffodil IS fork bracelet and I am trying to figure out how much it is worth. I know for sure it is 100% sterling silver and that it is an antique. I know it was made in the early to mid 1900s. I have been searching the web for something like it and have been unsuccessful. Can anyone tell me anything about it such as how much it is worth?

Answer
Hello.

This Rogers brand is now owned by International Silver. I have not seen Rogers/International Daffodil pieces made of sterling. The pieces I have seen were all made of silver plate.

If I am correct, the bracelet probably does not have a high value. Since I do not have much experience with jewelry, I can't say what the value of a converted piece might be. I can say that a Daffodil silver plate fork in its original form would be worth about a dollar when sold by an individual.

The Daffodil pattern was introduced in 1891. By that time, all U.S. sterling flatware manufacturers were placing the word, "Sterling", on sterling pieces.

Sorry I could not be of more help.

Best wishes,

Jim
