Question
Hi  I have the full set of this silverware and I'm interested in selling it. It's approximately 50 years old .thanks

Answer
Hello.

I could not find a Reed & Barton Solitaire Rose. I did find Rose Solitaire by Towle. Check the pictures at this site to see if this is the correct pattern: http://sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Msc/SterlSP.html.

Assuming the pattern is Rose Solitaire by Towle, the value will depend upon the specific pieces and sizes in the set. You can see prices at this page: http://www.replacements.com/webquote/TWSROS.htm#739483 . An individual selling this pattern could probably expect to sell for 25% to 35% of the prices you see. Here are a couple of recent sales on eBay to caompare: http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOWLE-1954-Rose-Solitaire-Pattern-Sterling-Silver-Flatwa and http://www.ebay.com/itm/Towle-Rose-Solitaire-Sterling-Silver-Set-Service-8-Plus- .

Hope this helps.

Let me know if I have the wrong pattern.

Best wishes,

Jim
