GRRiddler 2022 - Prizes: More Silver

 More Silver (Kind of)

Rose Marie (August 15, 1923 – December 28, 2017) was an American actress, singer, comedian, and vaudeville performer with a career that ultimately spanned nine decades - and included film, radio, records, theater, night clubs and television. As a child performer during the years just after the silent film era, she had a successful singing career under the stage name Baby Rose Marie. As an adult, she became one of the first major stars to be known simply by her given names.
Rose Marie was widely known for her role on the CBS situation comedy The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961–1966), as television comedy writer Sally Rogers, "who went toe-to-toe in a man’s world". Later she portrayed Myrna Gibbons on The Doris Day Show and was a 14-year panelist on The Hollywood Squares.
I was able to obtain a collection of Rose Marie's silverware from her daughter (who also included a certificate of authenticity). Now this collection of Rose Marie's personal silverware can be yours. You just need to be the first to find and retrieve the medallion!
I've included the markings found on the silverware below. One of my favorites is the spoon she obtained from a hotel in Europe: HOTEL D'ANGLETERRE
