The F. B. Rogers China Silver Plated Flatware Set comes with 64 pieces and comes with a French Rose Chest. These pieces are a great choice if you want a classic set of flatware. These pieces are considered antique silver or silverplate and will look beautiful in your home. This set is made of high quality silver and is in great condition.
Its design is quite simple. The flatware is stamped with 1847 and the name of the company. However, it lacks the detail you’d want. For example, it appears that some of the silver plating has been removed. While this would not be a bad thing, there’s no way to tell for sure if it’s old or damaged.
The company was founded in 1847 by William Rogers, Sr. and his brother, William Henry Rogers, and they operated in Hartford, Connecticut from 1856 to 1861. They were a silverplate specialty company, but they later became part of the National Silver Company.
