Real silver or plate?

Have these, not sure if they are silver plate etc. Also how can you get an idea of age?

The rule is: if it is not marked with any indication of silver fineness then it’s electroplate at best. All we have here is the mark of the manufacturer, Lee & Wigfull of Sheffield, so not silver. The company was in business from c1860 to c1935; accurate dating is not possible.
