Silver plated kettle teapot

I have an antique kettle teapot it think is Silver electroplated. Does anyone know the mark like a shield with ‘R’ and looks like and lower cse ‘e’ pr ‘a’ in the bottom left hand side of the shield mark. Would appreciate if anyone knows.

Many thanks.IMG_3718%5B1%5D IMG_3721%5B1%5D IMG_3719%5B1%5D

The mark you are asking about is most likely the initial of the original owner and has nothing to do with the manufacturer. A manufacturer’s mark would normally be found on the base. If there is nothing there then identification and dating will not be possible.
