These silver plated iced tea spoons were made in the early 1900's by Wm Rogers Manufacturing Company

and the other by Rogers after they were acquired by International Silver (the IS mark).

Each spoon has a current value of $10.00 retail because they are silver plated and not sterling, which has a much higher value.
