The maker is Joseph Rodgers & Sons of sheffield.

J R & S used the crown symbol for silver plated cutlery, and N.S for nickel silver.

if the jr is in an oval it is likely john roberts and son silver plate (the bp is for british plating which later became electro plating)

joseph rogers and son bought out john roberts and son...  they used a square around the jr, as opposed to the oval around the jr for john roberts and sons

Hi JR & S is probably John Round & Sons.

I can answer questions about silverplate flatware: how to identify patterns, how to estimate value, and how to do further research on your collection. I can`t answer questions about silver tea sets, candlesticks, plates, bowls, dishes, platters, ornaments or other silver collectibles.


I have been a collector of these pieces for many years.
