Hallmark identity

Just interested in these forks all my childhood and wondering where they are from. Thank you. I think they are box standard silver plated, but have been passed down a few decades, and I’m interested.

You are correct in thinking that they are plated. The shield contains “EP A1”, EP for electroplated and A1 to show that they are the manufacturer’s best quality. The maker was Smith Seymour Ltd of Sheffield.

Wow Phil, that was a quick reply. Thank you so much for that. Very interesting after looking at them all these years and not an idea what I’m looking at.
