Silver and Flatware/silver pieces


found three pieces, one a teapot stamped sl&gh and a stamp with a big R, underneath that is number 950,@ dishes that look like maybe candy dishs with 4 legs beneath the trademark say weridens number 818


These are my best guesses.

The teapot probably is from Simeon L. & George H. Rogers Company. This company was known for its silver plate items and was eventually acquired by Oneida. The "950" probably is a model number or catalog number.

Could the second company be "Meriden"? There was a Meriden Silver Plate Company known obviously for its silver plate pieces. The "818" probably is a model or catalog number.

There is a good possibility all these pieces were made in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Since they appear to be made of silver plate, I doubt they have a high value.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
