Help needed please, im not even sure if its silver

Hi im a bit stumped by these marks,if anyone has any idea it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It’s electroplate, not silver. The lettering reads EPGS which stands for electroplated German silver, German silver being an old name for the white metal alloy, nickel silver.

The manufacturer was Martin, Hall & Co of Sheffield.

Thankyou very much for your help, it’s very much appreciated.
