      I can't really make out the marks but Its most likely electroplated or sheffield plate. Sheffield plate was an early form of silver plating where the base metal was sandwiched between two thin sheets of silver, rather than the more modern electroplating. Might be English, could even be continental. Will guess at Victorian in date.

      Gothic EPBM stands for Electroplated Britannia Metal (Base metal).
      Maker's mark far right impossible to decipher;most likely one of numerous Sheffield manufacturers.
