Attic Find

Not sure if the pics are showing, but I found some tongs and just dont know where to start trying to locate the marks on this piece, ive a book but cannot locate them in there either. cheers in advance guys

I think that this is an electroplate mark of Thomas Prime & Sons of Birmingham. You can see a similar example here. It includes the same “MP” mark and crown and a very similar flower.
