69 Piece Vintage 1847 Rogers Bros First Love [serves 12] W/carving Set For Sale
This sale is for a 69 piece Set of 1847 Rogers Bros First Love silverplate. All pieces except the knives have the 1847 Rogers Bros. backstamp. The chest is included, but you may elect to not take it. It is your choice. Without the chest, the shipping charge is usually significantly lower. (If you would like a quote for shipping without the chest, message me.) After you win the sale, I will send an invoice that includes the chest. If you decide you do not want the chest, please message me for an updated invoice.
The First Love silverplate pattern was first introduced in 1937 by 1847 Rogers Brothers International Silver Company.
The serving pieces that are included are a large carving set, 3 large serving spoons, master butter knife, sugar spoon, large meat fork, and gravy ladle.
Included in this set are the following pieces:
12 Dinner Knives – 9 ¼” long (all have stainless steel tapered blades)
12 Dinner Forks – 7 ¾” long
12 Salad Forks with Diamond slot - 7" long
12 Oval Soup spoons – 7 ½” long
12 Teaspoons – 6 ¼” long
1 Butter Knife with Flat handle – 6 ¾” long
1 Sugar Spoon - 6" long
3 Serving Spoon – 8 ½” long
1 Cold Meat Fork – 9” long
1 Gravy Ladle – 6” long
The Carving Set consists of:
1 Carving Fork: 11 ¼” long
1 Carving Knife: 13 ¼” long
Both knife and fork have a shield. The knife has scratches from sharpening.
This set is in very good condition, but some tarnish may be present. The set could use a good cleaning – I will leave that to you. Most pieces do have some small scratches from use. There are no bent or dented or pitted tines/blades/handles/bowls.
The silver chest is about 16 ½” x 12” x 4” and accommodates this set quite well. I do not know if it is original with the set. The chest is structurally sound but shows wear. There is an engraving in the middle of the cover (see pictures). Like a lot of old silver chests, it has nicks, scratches in the finish. The hinges are secure and operate smoothly. The chest is still square and true and closes in alignment.
The interior of the chest shows similar use/wear. The material lining the chest is red.
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 smaller box for reduced 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.
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.
