help identify my inkwell, assumed silver plate

hi all, i have what i think is a silver plate inkwell, marked jordan sheffield collection. i am struggling to find what the marks mean, what ‘jordan’ means or who he/she is, tried books, websites, few auction houses but to date i am yet to find what im looking for[/img]

I agree that this is silver plate (electroplate). I can’t help with an identification but I suggest that you direct your search towards the USA where the term “Sheffield” was used in a generic sense for electroplate.
