Up to a service for 8 available in this beautiful vintage 1847 Rogers Bros 1937 First Love silverplate flatware pattern. This stunning floral art deco pattern was the all time best seller for 1847 Rogers Bros. and is the top of the line quality. This set features the modern dinner service with long handles which is also called the viande or grille style. The pieces have shorter service ends but longer handle sections than the traditional style of dinner size pieces.
There is up to a complete service for 8 available but we are offering the sets in services of 4, so you can choose if you would like a service for 4 or 8. Just pick the quantity desired (you can see at the upper right above the 'add to cart' button how many services for 4 people are available). Each service for 4 includes a total of 20 pieces which are as follows:
4 Hollow Handle Grille/Viande Style Dinner Knives 8-1/2" with Modern Stainless Blades
4 Grille/Viande Style Dinner Forks 7-5/8"
4 Place/Oval Soup Spoons 7-3/8"
4 Salad or Dessert Forks 6-3/4"
4 Teaspoons 6-1/8"
All but the knives are marked "1847 Rogers Bros IS", with or without "First Love"; the knives are marked "1847 Rogers Bros. Stainless". Please Note: When First Love was first produced in the late 1930's, the pieces were not marked "First Love" on the back; the pattern name was a later addition after World War II.

CONDITION: This dinner set is in very good to excellent, beautiful condition. No Monograms. No dents or bends in the metal. Just the normal light fine surface scratching you would expect to find with a used but well cared for set and some little scratches on some of the fork tines, mostly on the back. The pieces are super shiny and clean with no dullness of the finish and no plate wear. Gently hand polished and then hand washed and dried so it is ready to be given as a gift or for your own use.
Price is for each basic service for 4 people (20 pieces). Check the quantity at the upper right to see how many services for 4 are available.
