Help with faded mark please

This is lid from a glass bowl, some suggestion it was my Grandmothers Uncle.
The mark is faded, but any help such as age etc would be great.

I’m not sure of the manufacturer, but this is typical of a British electroplate mark. The crown shows that it is most likely late 19th century as use of the crown on electroplate became illegal c1895.

Thank you for your speedy reply, I now assume the fact its electroplate there is no real value other than family history?

As there is next to no silver content there is no intrinsic value. There may be some decorative / utility value, but I suspect that the family history value would probably be greatest.
