I know absolutely nothing about silver, but I am trying to learn. My mom inherited a set of silver serving pieces from her mom, who got them from my great grandma, who came from England when she was either 16 or 18 I believe. All I know is that the box that my grandma put the pieces in, she wrote 1896 on it.
So I don’t know what the marks mean. By googling for hours, I figured out EP means electro plated, but that’s about it.
The first picture is a close up of the piece from the back. It looks gold, but really I didn’t know how to photograph silver correctly.
The second picture is the knife itself (if that’s what it is)
I’m sorry the pictures aren’t great. I read the sticky on how to photograph silver after my dad had already left to take the set home to my mome
