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:
12 Dinner Knives – 9 ¼” long (all have stainless steel blades)
12 Dinner Forks – 7 ¾” long
12 Salad Forks – 7” long
12 Oval Soup/place spoons – 7 ½” long
12 Teaspoons – 6 ¼” long
12 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 Chip Beef fork – 6 ¼” long
The set includes a written “Unqualified Guarantee”. This set is in good vintage condition, but it does have some tarnish. Most pieces have scratches from use – typical for its age. There are no bent or dented tines/blades/handles/bowls.
The silver chest is large (about 19 ½” x 11 ½” x 3 ½”) and accommodates this set very well. 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. It will need repair – one hinge needs to be reattached.
The interior of the chest shows similar wear. The base is lined in maroon colored material. The silverware holder is secure to the bottom. Some of the material is worn. The lid is lined halfway up with the same wine colored material. The other half is off-white satin. There is a metallic sticker in the upper right hand card that says “1847” in large numbers; and “look for the year mark”. In smaller print “1847 Rogers Bros – For 90 years America’s Finest Plate.”
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.
