The First Love silverplate pattern was first introduced in 1937 by 1847 Rogers Brothers International Silver Company.
Included in this set are the following pieces:
8 Dinner Knives – 9 ¾” long (all have French tapered blades)
8 Dinner Forks – 7 ¾” long
8 Round Gumbo/Soup spoons – 7 ½” long
8 Teaspoons – 6 ¼” long
8 Five o’clock spoons – 5 ¾” long
8 Demitasse spoons – 4 ½” long
8 Butter Spreaders (flat handles) – 6 ¼” long
1 Master Butter Knife with Flat handle – 6 ¾” long
1 Sugar Spoon - 6" long
1 Large Meat Fork – 8 ¾” long
2 Serving Spoons – 8 ½” long
1 Gravy Ladle – 6” long
1 Fancy Embossed Chip Beef fork – 6 ¼” long
This set is in excellent condition, but it could have some tarnish. This set has at least 98% of its original luster – beautiful and shiny. Most pieces have very little scratches from use – not typical for its age. There are no bent or dented tines/blades/handles/bowls, and I can find no blemishes.
The silver chest is large (about 15” x 11” x 3 ¼”) and accommodates this set quite nicely. The chest shows wear. Not sure of its age, but like a lot of old silver chests, it has nicks and scratches in the finish, and a couple of holes drilled in the side of the lid.
The interior of the chest shows similar wear. The base is lined in maroon colored material (feels like velveteen, but may be felt). The silverware holder is secure to the bottom. Some of the material is somewhat worn. There is a metallic sticker that says “1847 Rogers Bros – Original Rogers Silverplate – An International Silver Co. Product.” Also another smaller sticker that states: “Prevent Tarnish – Container approved by International Silver Co.”
The lid is lined halfway up with the same wine colored material. The other half is off-white satin. Beautiful combination.
Silverplate is heavy, especially a set with a silver chest included. Accordingly, shipping is expensive. I ship USPS insured and the quoted price for shipping includes insurance. It takes time but I carefully wrap/package the silverplate and chest so it will arrive safely. If you elect to not take the chest, I can get the pieces in a much smaller box for reduced shipping cost and will send either Parcel Post or Priority Mail at your election. Please let me know if you need a price quote for shipping without the silver chest. Include your zip code in your request.
I only accept PayPal (cash okay if picked up locally - no charge for local pickup). Please feel free to message me if you have any questions.
Remember that the shipping time is for BUSINESS DAYS - we do not ship on Weekends or Holidays. I ship USPS unless you request otherwise. I make an effort to satisfy every buyer. Please e-mail any concerns within 3 days of receipt of your purchase.
