Sorry to tell you it is English electroplate and not silver, probably dating from the first half of the 20th century. The maker is James Dixon & Sons of Sheffield. The trumpet is their trade mark.

thanks for the info and quick reply there silvermakersmarks. any idea what the numbers underneath mean though?

They are Dixon’s pattern number for the item.
