Patterns in Silverplate

These are Silverware that was comissioned sometime from 1865, when they then became part of the International Silver Company. They are marked on the back of the pieces as: ' WM. Rogers Mfg Co' which was used after 1865 by William and his son William Jr. and then later by the International Silver Company.

The selection of cutlery is housed in a beautifully wave-fluted crafted wooden case - however the wood itself has taken some rough handling - t are scratches and scuffs all about it's exterior. It is lined with a soft blue velvety, and white satin material interior.

The set may not be complete - t are in fact 8 dinner knives; 1 fish/butter knife; 1 sugar/jam spoon; 11 spoons; 8 desert forks; 8 dinner forks; and 16 teaspoons.

T is a packer's slip:"Boxed by 1706", and a silver foiled seal glued to the plush interior that states: "Tarnish Resistance - I.S Chest - Tested and Approved by the Laboratories of the International Silver Co." - unfortunatly they didn't do a good job on the testing, because many of the pieces have indeed TARNISHED. Also, inside the box, is the original Guarantee Certificate 'WM Rogers MFG Co AA'...etc

The box itself is smelly - in fact even Fre'breeze couldn't shift the musty odour, it is just a little too pungent to say the least!
