Can anyone help identify maker and year of manufacture of this Scottish silver teaset I think from the mid 1800'd please. Cannot find some of these refererences anywhere and no thistle is puzzling.

Many thanks
David :D

I believe that D&S over G represents Davis & Sons of Glasgow. The other four letters are EPNS for electroplated nickel silver. The date is late 19th / early 20th century.
