Question
Hi,
Found several thinks after my Mother passes
1.A very large spoon with independent and a bell and A1+
2.spoon that says 1891 Rogers
3.Tudor Plate one Ida community made spoon
Not sure were they came from just wondering if you knew anything about them

Answer
Hello.

Since the word, "Sterling", is not on any of these pieces, they most probably are made of silver plate. I don't recognize the "bell" mark. Feel free to send a picture of the mark if you like.

There were many different brands with "Rogers" in the name. I believe "1891 Rogers" is now owned by Oneida.

The "Community" brand is owned by Oneida.

I doubt these have great value. Most used silver plate flatware sells for around one dollar per piece.

Best wishes,

Jim
