Question
Hello,
I have a silver tea set and tray from RogersBros IS.   The collection is the Heritage. The numbers are sugar bowl 9403, tea pot 9402, creamer 9404, coffee pot 9401,  sugar bowl 9403, and the tray 9492.  Can you tell me the date and value of these articles? They are in excellent condition.
Vince

Answer
Hello.

The "IS" stands for International Silver Company which took over this Rogers brand in 1898. I think the Heritage brand was introduced by IS in the 1930's but I'm not sure.

Here is a link to a page with some pieces that should look familiar. http://www.replacements.com/webquote/INSHERI2.htm#10565637 An individual selling pieces could expect to receive 15% to 25% of the prices you see on the referenced page.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Jim
