Help Identify Flag Stand

Hi all

I recently acquired a flag stand that appears to be silver plated, Or is silver. A magnet will not stick to it and it is marked O.S.P. 40. Any information on it’s age or manufacturer would be appreciated.

Thanks
Charlie





Possibly OSP = Old Sheffield Plate.

Thanks
