Hi. I have had for 35 or so years a beautiful old 8 1/2" long tablespoon that looks & feels for all the world like coin silver--plain fiddle shape with chamfered edge-- but is clearly engraved on the back, ROGERS BRO'S. and under that, SOLD IN ALBATA. No other marks of any kind.

Now in Googling I find that Albata is defined as a type of white metal alloy like "German" silver, but that is absolutely all the info available on the web. Nothing about Rogers Bro's. ever making flatware in it.

The curious phrase, "Sold in Albata" makes me wonder if it might have been a salesman's sample piece.

Anyone ever seen this mark before and know anything about it?
