Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.
Your vintage goblets would have been produced by the Wilcox Silver Company in Meriden, CT under the auspices of the International Silver Company or IS.
The pattern 195 silver plated goblets would have a current resale value of 5-7USD each in excellent condition.
We are currently in somewhat of a tough silver-plate market, but the water goblets do have some value to them as long as they are in good shape. Any damage including dents, dings, or missing silver-plate would detract from the resale value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your silver-plate goblets.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
