How much is 81 pc. set of 1847 Rogers Bros XS Triple dinnerware worth?




facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It is a mint condition, silver plated, 82 piece set of 12 knives, 6 soup spoons, 12 butter knives, 13 teaspoons, 12 dinner forks, 6 serving spoons, 12 salad forks, 6 table spoons, 1 large meat fork, 1 gravy ladle, and 1 dinner platter. I have heard it been called multiple styles such as; Isabella, Vintage or Grape. The design does have the grapes and it looks like the images found on http://www.rubylane.com/item/153293-RL-965/1847-Rogers-Bros-Grape-Pattern
An offer was made for 2.00 USD 30 yrs ago, it had been the only place I had taken it to so I was wondering if anyone had an idea on its true value.

    Check eBay sold results for that pattern. There is quite a lot of Rogers sold on eBay and prices are all over the place due to the many variables: Pattern, condition, set size and completeness (you will see a lot of odd-numbered pieces – yours is fairly even, 6 or 12, and the one extra teaspoon does you no good, really), and if there is a storage case, how nice that is. Those varied also, from cheap to very well-made.

    I think you should do better than the price from 30 years ago, but not enough to offset the ravages of inflation. If you had taken that $162 and put it in 3 -yr CDs and kept rolling them, even with the next-to-nothing you would have gotten the last five years or so, you would still have tripled your money. There were several double-digit years in the ’80s. You won’t get anywhere near $488 for it.
