Reed & Barton 1869 help

My wife and I recently inherited a lot of silver flatware and various large items. I have no clue what the items are officially called. I’m completely ignorant. Here is what I do know about it.

MFD silver by Reed & Barton
Design fat Jan. 12, 1869

Any help to the value of the silver would be greatly appreciated. I sort of want to keep it, but my wife wants to get rid of it since we are moving at the end of the year.

the ‘hallmark’ is a silver plate one. They still have value though not as much as solid silver, the large item in the picture is most likely a tea-urn.
