Unknown silver markings

Hi all, i was hoping one of you can help me identify what these markings mean, I’ve tried to get the best pictures I can but it’s hard to take photos of the small markings.
Also if possible I was hoping someone could tell me what they’re called, when they were made and what they were worth. Any information helps thank you!

I do know that it is made by walker & hall



This is not a Walker & Hall piece; it was made by William Hutton & Sons of Sheffield and is probably a bonbon dish - for a selection of sweetmeats. It is not silver, being either electroplated or possibly nickel plated as I think that I see “N P” after the manufacturers initials. Dating is not possible for this, but late 19th / early 20th century would be a fair estimate. As it has no silver content it has no intrinsic value. Maybe there is some decorative or utility value but it is not going to be especially great.
