Up to Service for 12 of International Silver Wm. Rogers & Son EXQUISITE silverplate flatware set. This set features the modern dinner service with long handles which is also called the viande or grille set. The pieces have shorter service ends but longer handle sections than the ordinary dinner size pieces.This elegant pattern dates back to 1940, at the very end of the art deco period. In the 1940's, floral patterns became popular so you will see a combination of both styles in this design. The handles feature a softly pointed tip, with a fleur-de-lis shape near the end and a single flower at the very tip. The handle edges are decorated with tiny geometric detailing.
Each service for 4 includes the following 24 pieces:
4 Hollow Handle Grille Dinner Knives 8-1/2" with Modern Stainless Blades (Please see NOTE below about grille knife styles).
4 Grille Dinner Forks 7-5/8"
4 Salad or Dessert Forks 6-5/8"
4 Oval Soup/Place Spoons 7-3/8"
8 Teaspoons 6-1/8" (double teaspoons)
Pieces are marked "Wm. Rogers & Son IS Exquisite" except the knives which are marked "Stainless" on the blades.
NOTE: There are two different styles of grille/viande knives shown in this listing. The difference is in where the blades connect to the handles. You will see one style shown in the place setting and the other style shown in the photo of the entire service for 4. I do have both styles available so if you have a preference, please tell me at the time of purchase. Thank you!
Please inquire if you are interested in adding serving pieces or extra pieces to your set as I have some available including iced teas and gumbo round soups. Additional pieces will ship for free.

CONDITION: Excellent, used condition. Just the normal light fine surface scratching you would expect to find with a used set. Some of the forks have minor scratches on the back of the tines. No Monograms. The pieces are 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.
