Tea caddy- old Sheffield plate?

Can you help me identify the age and maker of this tea caddy? Is it old Sheffield plate? It appears to be silver over copper with perhaps a copper wash on top of the silver on vertical faces.

It’s electroplate, not OSP. The maker is Sheffield Silver Co of Brooklyn, NY. It probably dates from mid-20th century.
