Mr. Stringer, can you identify the pattern in this picture and tell us about it's age and content?  Thanks Much

Answer
Hello.

It's sometimes difficult to identify a pattern based upon a knife. The design often is slightly different from that on forks and spoons. I can't tell from the picture what this pattern is. Try looking at the pictures here to see if you can tell: http://sterlingflatwarefashions.com/SPPatterns/SLGHRogers2.html .

This Rogers company was known for making silver plate pieces. Therefore, I'm assuming that is what you have. It would have the word, "Sterling", on it somewhere if there were sterling components.

This company was started in the late 19th century and eventually became part of Oneida in the early 20th century.

Best wishes,

Jim
