Hi! My name is Melissa and I just stumbled upon this forum while trying to google the markings on my grandmothers’ silver.
From Grandmom #1, I have three spoons, and a serving fork and butter knife from Rogers Bros. 1847. The fork and butter knife are in what I believe to be the “Vintage” pattern, and the fork is monogrammed with an H for my grandmom’s maiden name. I believe the fork and butter knife were a wedding gift to her parents. I haven’t been able to identify the spoon pattern. She passed two years ago, so I can’t ask.
From Grandmom #2 (still with us, she’s 95!): A set of six spoons. The only marking on the back says “STERLING” and that’s it, no company, no names or anything. The pattern on the spoon handles appears to be engraved, and each spoon is also monogrammed with a B. These spoons were a gift to my great-grandmother for her wedding in 1911, and my grandmother gave them to me at my wedding in 2001.
I’ve attached photos. I can take pics of the markings, too, if anyone wants me to post them.
