My first time posting to this site.
Recently I aquired a 44 piece set of Sheffield Silerplate. On the back of each piece is:
ESPN A1 Butler Sheffield England
There is an extra piece with the set with is a sauce ladle and it shows a heart stamp with an s in it.
The pattern is Beaded
There is also an etching on the knives. I’m including a photo of this etching.
I am trying to find out how to tell if this is 25 or 35 year plate, approximate age of this set and value. Any other information would be greatly appreciated.
