WM Rogers Mini Ladle?

Hello,

I recently acquired this WM Rogers spoon. It looks like a mini ladle. I’d like any information…year it was made, what material it is made of, or what it is worth. Thanks!

The spoon is NOT magnetic, so I’m hoping its sterling silver, and not just plated? I’m new to the Spoon Game.

The engraving on the back says WMROGERS but there is more to it.

It looks like:
A Bird, WMROGERS, A star, and then the number 2.

The pattern seems very intricate…see the pics. Thanks for the help!

The mark you describe appears on this page of American silverplate marks, so it seems it is plated rather than sterling. The usual rule of “if it doesn’t say sterling then it isn’t” seems to apply. I can’t help with any of your other questions.
