Hi, The Reed & Barton set and the tray by F.B. Rogers are both silverplated wares and not sterling silver. The Reed & Barton 5600 tea set is called the Regent set and it sells for as high as $150 - $200 for the set together, which is relatively high for silver plate. A large plated tray can sell for $65 - $100 on today's market. ~Nora
