The chest is included, but you may elect to not take it. Instead, please message me for an updated invoice. The First Love silverplate pattern was first introduced in 1937 by 1847 Rogers Brothers International Silver Company. Included in this set are the following pieces.
12 Dinner Knives 9 ¼ long (all have stainless steel blades). 12 Dinner Forks 7 ¾ long.12 Salad Forks 7 long. 12 Seafood Cocktail Forks 5 ½ long.
12 Oval Soup/Dessert Spoons 6 ¾ long. 24 Teaspoons 6 ¼ long. 1 Master Butter Knife 6 ¾ long. 1 Sugar Spoon - 6 long.
3 Serving Spoons 8 ½ long. 1 Tomato Server 7 ½ long. Authentic 1847 Rogers Bros Chest. All pieces have International Silver (IS) except knives.All of them also display the pattern name FIRST LOVE on the back of the handle. This set is in very good condition except the tomato server. It has one small ding in the bowl visible in the lower left area of the bowl as shown in pictures #3 & #9.
Some tarnish is present, but I think it should wipe right off with a polishing cloth. Each piece is as I found it at an estate sale. I did not attempt to clean or polish it. Most pieces do have some small scratches from use and some tarnish is present.There are no bent or dented or pitted tines/blades/handles/bowls. The silver chest is about 17 x 11 ½ x 3 ¾ and accommodates this set very well.
The chest is structurally sound but shows a wear. Like a lot of older silver chests, it has nicks and scratches and scrapes in the finish. The hinges are secure and operate smoothly. The chest is still square and true and closes in alignment. The interior of the chest also shows some use/wear.The material lining the chest is a lovely wine color. Above the knife holders it states 1847 Rogers Bros - For Over 100 Years - Americas Finest Silverplate. Silverplate is heavy, especially a set with a silver chest included. It takes time but I carefully wrap/package the silverplate and chest so it will arrive safely. I do not use rubber bands to wrap the silverware; there is a chemical used in the processing of rubber that actually burns the silverplate.
