cutlery hallmarks

Hi I have a collection of cutlery but am unsure what the markings mean.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

The first is silverite w.p&co

It means it’s not silver. Silverite was a trade name for a base metal alloy used by William Page & Co of Birmingham (see silvercollection.it/electrop … .html#PAG1). You may find other relevant electroplate and non-silver manufacturers’ marks there. Remember, if you want a firm identification from us, that pictures are essential.
