Help with identifying marks on cake stand

Hi. I found a lovely Art Deco silver(?)

Cake stand today. I’ve spent ages trying to work out the hallmarks but with no joy. Possibly electro plated?? If you can help that would be great. Many thanks. Clare.

Yes, it’s electroplated (EP is the clue!). The makers are Cooper Brothers of Sheffield - the rest of the mark reads “C Bros S”.


Thank you so much! That’s really helpful.

Now I know the maker I have been trying to find something similar online to try and get a date and find out more about it (and estimate it’s value) but cannot find anything similar. Does anybody know anything more about this item? I think it may be a Bon Bon tray. Patent applied for: 29930 is marked on it. Many thanks in advance.
