Silver tablespoon

Hi, can you please help me identify this piece of cutlery? I believe it was my grandmother’s, so early 1900’s or later.

Thank you.

EPNS is electroplated nickel silver - so not actually silver apart from a microscopically thin surface layer. It is a generic mark not specific to any particular manufacturer so cannot be identified or dated. A1 simply means that it’s the best quality produced by whoever made it.


AHH thank you, very helpful.
