Isn't this the sweetest pattern?! So elegant, yet unpretentious.
By 1847 Rogers Bros. I've been doing some research on silver and it appears that this isn't sterling, but inlaid silver (indicated by the IS) which is silver over another stronger metal. Not as valuable, but then ~ I treasure mine for the fact that it's from family. I am also under the impression that this particular set was manufactured (or at least first introduced) in 1937.
