I have a set and several additional pieces from my aunt. Wm Rogers & sons AA IS
And a set of soup spoons with anchor Rogers anchor XII. Are these solid silver? And are they worth anything? I'm wondering if I should hang onto them for my kids.

Answer
Hello.

The "IS" represents International Silver Co. which took over most of the brands with "Rogers" in the name in 1898.

These are made of silver plate. As a result, they have low values on the resale market. I recommend just using and enjoying them.

If you are interested in determining the patterns, you can compare to pictures here: http://sterlingflatwarefashions.com/Msc/SterlSP.html . Once you know the patterns, you can look at actual recent sales of the patterns on eBay to get an idea of value.

Best wishes,

Jim
