    It's a nice silver plated sugar sifter.
    Caster sugar sifted over strawberries!
    The marks indicate silver plate not sterling.
    EP = electroplate. A1 Quality plate.

    Thanks very much vetraio50!

    I appreciate your help!

    I wish I would have gotten this message 6 days ago...
    because I now do not have it. You never know where emails end up and not get to you!

    I will try to mention your expert words to the new owner, if I can find her and/or him.

    How old do you think it is?

    Oh, what's the S for?

    Some silver on that one?
  4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 4 years ago
    Ni Ben I believe the 'S' is for 'silver' and the 'EP' for 'electro-plate'.
  5. Benking, 4 years ago
    So the S is for silver, you say?

    The Gothic "S" represents the assay mark, for Sheffield, England. Below, is a great resource, for identifying hallmarks, for English silver plate / electroplate on nickel silver.
  7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 4 years ago
    Stainedglass is correct Benking. The spoon is plated silver. The S will be for Sheffield.

    I wonder if any mark tells the age, the year?
