M Dolan in her book American Sterling Silver Flatware has this to say pg 210: The silver flatware of this company is still monumentally underpriced and when prices begin to reflect true value, both actual and historic, it will probably be too late to begin a collection. This company really represents the pot ofsilver at the end of the rainbow. A knowledgeable person emailed:The pattern is Roses & Scrolls discontinued in 1890. Pretty spoon!
