Hello..thank you for your expertuse regarding silverware.  I have a set by wm rogers and son. Victorian rose set.  I am enclosing a photo of the back of the serving fork.  All the utensils have this.  This has been past down but not sure of date?  Just wondering the approx. Worth?  I have 7 knives,9 soup spoons, 7 teaspoons?, one round sugar spoon?, 5 dinner forks, 8 dessert forks and one butter knife.  Thank you very much!  Anne

Hello.

The "IS" on the back represents International Silver Company which took over this Rogers brand in 1898. I believe IS introduced Victorian Rose in 1954.

Unfortunately, silver plate flatware does not hold its value very well. An individual selling used pieces could expect about a dollar per piece. Here is an example of a recent sale on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rogers-Silverplate-Flatware-Victorian-Rose-Set-49p-w-Che .

Best wishes,
