This vintage wooden flatware chest with complete service for eight (52 pieces) is in very good+ used condition.  There are some minor imperfections which are detailed below.

The chest measures 17" x 12" x 4" when closed.  When opened, it has an ivory colored satin piece of material at the top; the rest of the lining is a burgundy colored felt.  The top has twelve double loops for holding knives and special pieces; the bottom has ten divisions for forks and spoons.  Printed on the ivory material is "1847 ROGERS BROS. - For Over 100 Years - America's Finest Silverplate."  Additionally, a label on the inside of the chest states  "TARNISH-RESISTANT CHEST - Tested and Approved by the Laboratories of The International Silver Company."

The chest has what appears to be a number of small, beige paint splotches on the front and side - please see photos.  It is a dark wood fastened by two hinges, each 1" wide, in the back.  There are small surface scratches on the front and a large square area on the front is a bit shinier than the rest - most likely from something having been stored on top of the chest.

The flatware included in this set consists of:

  • 8 butter knives - each 9.25" long with a 5" blade
  • 8 rounded (soup) spoons - each 7" long
  • 16 teaspoons - each 6 1/8" long
  • 8 forks - each 7.75" long
  • 8 salad forks - each 6.75" long
  • 2 table serving spoons - each 8.5" long
  • 1 sugar/condiment spoon - 6" long
  • 1 butter serving knife - 6.75" long

The flatware pieces are in the beautiful pattern First Love.  The back of each piece states "1847 Rogers Bros.    IS    First Love".   Most of the pieces show some tarnish and are in need of a thorough cleaning; however, their beauty comes through.  The pieces are silverplated and manufactured in 1937 by the International Silver Company. 

What a wonderful find - a full service for eight in a lovely pattern!
