epns is not silver. Your tray is ElectroPlatedNickelSilver (EPNS) that is a thin layer of silver on a base material. Say that your tray weights 100 then 0,01 is silver - rest 99,99 is base material.
It is not a hallmark - but mark of an Electro Plate maker - sorry dont know who.
2079 is not an inscription but most likely a produck code or number.

Post a picture of the marks here. It’s not difficult - just use the “Add an Attachment” feature when you post, but ensure that the picture is not too large: trim or shrink it using graphics editing software.
