I have recently inherited a set of utensils from my grand-mother who inherited them from her aunt who had raised her. On the back of the utensils are the following markings: a symbol that looks sort of like a bird (not sure if it is or not very small and hard to see), followed by WM.ROGERS, folled by a star and then further on there is an I and an S . I haven't been able to find the name of the pattern or the age of the set. Anyone know somewhere I could look for information? or have information? Thank you for the help.

Mal, the mark is the Eagle Wm. Rogers Star mark which belonged to the William Rogers Co. of Hartford, CT. This company, along with a great many others, were members of the conglomerate known as International Silver which later became a company in their own right. The IS shows that this probably is a pattern that was produced by International Silver after they became a company, and could indicate a later pattern. A picture of the pattern would be most helpful.
