Please help me find out about this item

Does any one no if this is silver? Where they come from and what year plz


No it is not silver - EPBM stands for electroplated Britannia metal so it’s electroplate on a base metal alloy. The manufacturer is Lee & Wigfull of Sheffield (hence “L&W.S”). Accurate dating is impossible for electroplate; the best I can say is that it dates from late 19th to mid 20th century.
