    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.
    5. BHock45 BHock45, 7 years ago
      walksoftly nailed it. This is Gorham's silver pate marking. Or one of them:

      Silver plate on copper stinks.
