This is a great find for anyone who collects the Victorian Rose silverware pattern. I'm not exactly sure what date the Victorian Rose pattern was released, but my parents received the set for a wedding gift and they were married in 1946. The tarnish resistant wooden case is very heavy and is in fairly good condition. The set is from Wm. Rogers & Son. Each piece has the International Silver Co. insignia. Upon closer inspection of the set, I noticed that some, not all, of the pieces are lightly engraved with the letter K, which can barely be seen.

This is not a complete set, t are a few pieces missing. The set contains:

8 Knives
8 Forks
8 Dessert Forks
16 Teaspoons
4 Tablespoons
1 Serving Spoon
1 Sugar Spoon
1 Butter Knife
1 Ladel Spoon
1 Slated Spoon
1 Serving Fork

DISCLAIMER: I am not a collector and did not have any prior knowledge of this flatware set before the listing except for the fact of knowing that my parents received the set as a wedding gift in the 1940s and it remained packed away for most of those years. When researching the Wm Rogers & Son and the International Silver companies prior to listing, I came up with conflicting information. One source stated that the Victorian Rose pattern was first released in 1954 and another source stated that the pattern was released in the 1940s. Since my mother always told me that she received the set in 1946 as a wedding gift, the 1954 date had me baffled. I have received several e-mails since the listing and information that I am getting from collectors is contrary as well. Tfore, I cannot exactly verify when the pattern was first released.
