Condition original surface, shows some silver loss, minor dents described above are not highly noticeable. The RS&Co, New Haven plant continued to 1866 continuing to use RS&Co marks 1862-66. Henry Mead was an instrumental mover in American silverplate manufacturing when he brought electroplating technology after a visit to Birmingham, England. RS&Co was one of the many partnerships of William Rogers, which included Rogers Bros, 1847. The four pieces are identical, with three marked RS&Co and the creamer marked Meriden Co.This combination conceivably dates to the transition period of 1868 or 1869. This is great steampunk motif for the contemporary decorators using this motif with angle/scroll handles, vented panels on rims and spouts, and cogged rims.
