Berry Spoon?

I have recently aquired a spoon, which I am presuming is silver. I purchased it as it was very nice and I thought it would be interesting to research it. However I have not been able to identify any of the marks. There are alot of fruit, such as, pineapple, grapes including the vine leaves, peach, melons, as well as small berries.

There is a makers mark BP, which I thought maybe Benjamin Preston, but not 100% certain. There are another 5 which again I cannot decipher, one is definitely looks like 2 swords crossed. .

I really like it and would like to know a bit more about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

BP may not be the maker’s mark - it often stands for Britannia Plate. We need to see a picture of the marks.
