Identify Fork

Hi all
found an interesting fork in a box of junk I can’t identify any of the marks its possibly foreign. its got no obvious EP or EPNS marks. See picture below.
Thanks for your help

This is actually electroplate. The manufacturer is Elkingtons of Birmingham. Unusually for an electroplater Elkingtons used date letters. The W dates this to 1861.

many thanks to your quick reply, i’ll keep searching through the junk until i find something a bit more interesting
