Please Help me identify this silverware. I have looked all over the internet and cannot find anything quite like this. It has been in the family for a few years. I will add some photos to help.[/img]

Just the word Italy on each piece. I was trying to see if they have any value. Thanks

If "Italy" is the only mark you can be virtually certain they are silver plated at best and of little value. They look very tarnished....have you tried a mild polish on them? They might not even be silver plated, maybe pewter or some other metal.

The symbols of the spoons are italian city marks - Lion with book for Venice, Wulf for Rome.
etc.
