This is a pair of Walker and Hall silver plated ladles made from 1885 to 1905 based on these marks

(I was able to blow up the picture enough to see what was needed).

The lower case gamma letter in the shield is the mark of this period.

The A1/EP are the marks for A1 quality Electroplate.

The value of these ladles is £40 each retail.

Can I try and send you another photo of an assortment of silver and silver plated small spoons to ask you what you think the selling price should be approximately. Thank you

I do one item/matched set per question, so you would start a new question for each 'set' and put 'forCustomer#39; in the beginning of the question so that it would be saved for me. It is possible that it will only let you add 1 pic with the inquiry, but once I say hello, it will let you add more.
