I can see EP, a crown and NS sideways. The EP and NS are almost certainly the identifying marks for electroplated nickel silver which confirms your thoughts about non-silver. The mark on the left is illegible. It may offer a clue to the manufacturer, but it is more likely to some other sort of marking. If you can get a clear picture of the marks, for example by photographing through a loupe or magnifying glass, it might help.

Many Thanks the mark that does not show up well is another crown

In that case I don’t think that you are going to get a manufacturer’s identity.
