I acquired a small set of unusual scrolled silver flatware and have searched in vain on the Net to try to find the pattern name. Any help appreciated. Here's a small photo of the handles, knives on left and a fork handle. The only mark is 1847 Rogers Bros in one stamp, then a circular small stamp that I can't read even under extreme magnification. Here's a link to the image on my server:

Thanks in advance. Liz

Could It be Parisian, Similar?

Thank you, Carolyn, for your reply. I checked but the Parisian pattern appears to have a curved shape of the handle whereas mine is tapered but straight. Here are a couple of better images:

I am reasonably sure that this pattern dates to before stainless steel blades as these are both blunt and silver plated. This would date this pattern somewhere before approx. 1900, could be a little later. I don't have any pattern ID books on silver flatware yet but am considering getting at least one with as many patterns as possibly included, both sterling and plate. Recommendations welcome! Thanks again, Liz
Good news! While I was researching another pattern online, I stumbled on the one I couldn't find, per previous. It's called Arabesque, first issued in 1887 by 1847 Rogers Bros. So now I could update my web page with this pattern name. Incidentally, I found a new way of searching Replacements and that's how I came across it. Thanks again, Carolyn! I have Saved the Rogers patterns page you linked for me, good info. on very old patterns.
Hi Liz and Carolyn, First a great book on silverplate patterns is "The Standard Encyclopedia of American Silverplate, Flatware and Hollow Ware" by Francis M. Bones and Lee Roy Fisher. Secondly, Liz can you share with us your new way of researching on replacements? I am very intriqued! Thanks Vicki
