Arabic markings -- Please help...

My mother gave me two silver sauce boats…i think thats what they are anyway. One is english, the other is in arabic. We lived in Egypt when i was a kid, so i am sure thats where its from, but can’t tell if the item is new or antique…The other one i am pretty sure is from 1902. If someone would confirm that, i would be most pleased.Thanks

I can’t help with the Arabic mark, but the other is, as you thought, 1902 and is a London assay mark. HS is Henry Stratford Ltd of Sheffield.
