Hallmark help EP

Please could someone help me decipher a hallmark on a tea set. I’m guessing it’s silver plated but would love to know it’s year and maker if anyone can help. Many thanks. Jess

Your are correct in thinking that it is electroplated. EP and BM together stand for electroplated Britannia metal. Britannia metal is a base metal alloy akin to nickel silver. The manufacturer is I S Greenberg & Co of Birmingham. As it is electroplate it does not have any form of dating but it probably dates to the first half of the 20th century.


You’re amazing. Thank you SO much. I really appreciate your help :slight_smile:
