R reversed hallmark on sheffield silver jug and sugar caddy?

Hello i was given a few pieces and wondering what the hallmark is and if they are solid or plated silver any help please

RR is Richard Richardson of Sheffield. EPBM stands for electroplated Britannia metal so your pieces are not silver. Britannia metal is a base white metal alloy.

Thanks Phil appreciate that dought they are worth much whats your opinion and thinking i will just put them back in the cabinet for a few years
