Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

The Eternally Yours pattern that was originally produced by Rogers Brothers then made by International Silver when the Rogers was absorbed by them is a plated set and not sterling silver. As a rule of thumb, any sterling silver flatware pieces produced in America would be clearly marked 'sterling' on each individual piece.

Plated sets do not have a precious metal meltdown value like sterling silver does. Eternally Yours flatware sets sell for under $100 on today's auction market.
