I am a newcomer so I'm not sure if this is how to find what I need to find.
I have a coffee pot, cream and sugar made by Walker & Hall. I need to find out if it is silver plate or silver. I've added some photos that may help. If you know anything about this set please let me know.

The marks are Walker & Hall's electroplate markings so they are plate rather than solid. The Greek letter pi is a proprietary date code used by Walker & Hall. One of our contributors has published a key to these codes; he may be able to date your coffee set.
