Godd Morning!
My first time posting to this site.
Recently I aquired a 44 piece set of Sheffield Silerplate. On the back of each piece is:
ESPN A1 Butler Sheffield England
There is an extra piece with the set with is a sauce ladle and it shows a heart stamp with an s in it.
The pattern is Beaded
There is also an etching on the knives. I'm including a photo of this etching.
I am trying to find out how to tell if this is 25 or 35 year plate, approximate age of this set and value. Any other information would be greatly appreciated.

Gratefully,
lamepaw

The close-up of the etching on the knife shows it to be stainless steel, not silver plate. You can tell from the engraved words "Stainless Steel". It's a giveaway!
