Help with Hallmark ID


Can some very kind soul please identify these hallmarks. They’re from a silver teaport that’s also engraved with the date 1881, so I’d think that it should be from before that.

Many thanks,

Not silver, I’m afraid. The Old English letters are BMEP which stand for Britannia Metal ElectroPlate. We normally see them as EPBM. I can’t read enough of the defaced maker’s mark to identify them.

OK. Thanks. I can see the P now!
