Customer Question

I have a set of silver flatware and the manufacturer is "Rogers & Bro." (there is a five pointed star in front of the word Rogers). I can find the same pattern I have on eBay but all the ones I found on eBay have "stainless" stamped in the knives, mine do not. I'm curious if you think they have much value (its a setting for 12)

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Virtually all knife blades are stainless steel--it's just not required that they be marked. (The handles are typically silver).

Which pattern do you have? I can't tell from the photo you uploaded.
