Rogers & Bro. A-1 Fairy Pattern c.1892 youth set depicts child-like figures / fairies playing with dolls and a hoop used for an era favored game of hoop rolling / trundling while performing what today would be un-child-like and probably frowned upon activities (even illegal?) but their activities at the time were not abnormal for children, rather were condoned and even encouraged. Possibly today these utensils would carry a parental discretion advised rating?
Parental warning aside; these are quite collectable and in my opinion very well done pieces, merging the art of the Victorian era with the flatware of the Victorian age. The pieces show some use scratches and wear to the silver plate. They are in good condition with their designs being in very good, crisp and clean condition. The fork measures 6 1/8 inches long from the heal to the top of the center tines, the two outer tines are slightly shorter (?). The knife measures 7 1/4 inches long. Both are signed on the back with, * ROGER & BRO. A1, the same signature as on the outer box's top shell (shown with the flatware in the first and second photos, as well as, on the box top in the third photo). The box is in amazing condition for its 120 plus years of age, as pictured. The set should make a very nice addition to any collection or they could be used as a conversation starter at your next adult party as servers perhaps on a canape tray. ( M6964 )
