Need help identifying

Need help identifying the attached coffee and tea service. Marks on bottom: W and A in circles, EPNS, Made in Sheffield England. I inherited the set from my grandmother and don’t know if it is valuable or just pretty. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Without an image of the marks, it’s difficult to give a true definition, however, the ‘WA’ could be William Adams Inc. of Birmingham & New York, founded in 1865 by William Adams.
A lot of product was exported, especially to the United States.
EPNS = ElectroPlated Nickel Silver.

John

Do you know if it has any value or is it just pretty?

It has no intrinsic value as there is next to no silver there. Any value is in its “prettiness”.

Thank you both for your help. It is nice to know what I have.
