I was given when my mother died her mother's Bamboo SALTS & PEPPERS set of 4. The company who made them is: F. B. Rogers Silver Company. The side of the box says, F450 salts & Peppers.

I was wanting to see if I could possibly find out some information on these salts and pepper shakers and what year were they made.

The set sounds like an interesting set.

As a general reply to your question re: the manufacturer, obtained from a general silver reference book (Rainwater):

    The F. B. Rogers Silver Company was originally founded in 1883 in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts and was moved to Taunton, MA in 1886. The company has used many different marks over the years and they are still in business today.

Posting better photos of any markings or numbers on the set, will help in determining the age.

Good luck!
