Hello,

Thank you for the images. Are any of these marked 'sterling'?

The Reed & Barton knife, fork and spoon flatware. The others are sterling plate I think
Expert:  Nora replied 4 months ago.

Hi,

Thank you for your patience. The 30 piece set of sterling silver flatware by Reed & Barton can garner up to $600 - $800 on today's market. The silverplate bowls average about $10 - $15 each. The Rogers Eternally Yours set in box can reach $300 - $400. The Rogers Grapevine Spoon set could sell for up to $120. The best platform for selling these would be on Ebay. Though it may sound cliche, it is where the most potential buyers would first go to search for such items.
