Almost sold this today at our garage sale that we had with our neighbors.

I tried to Id the hallmark but I am recently new to Hallmarks.
Marked saint james, has a shamrock stamped on bottom as pictured.

Also, I was told by an older lady that if it "sticks" then there is a good chance its silver. It smells kind of like an armpit.

Love this piece and would like to learn more about it. If you recognize this please to a moment to help out :) Many thanks in advance.

    its not sterling silver. EP means Electro Plate as walksoftly mentioned.

    walksoftly nailed it. This is Gorham's silver pate marking. Or one of them:
