tricky makers marks and date makrs---candleabra

I am looking to identify this candleabra. It has been in my family since, at least the early 20th century. I have spent some time trying to identify the marks on the bottom and cannot figure it out…possibly Gorham, but there is no real date mark…any help is appreciated

Hi there and thanks for joining us. Your piece is indeed Gorham (Providence, R.I.) and the mark is one of their silverplate marks, probably the “Elmwood” line. The “E P” stands for “Electro Plated” and the number below that is the pattern or model number. Gorham did not place date marks on its silverplated wares.
