This is a sterling silver footed creamer made by silversmith Henry Bourne of Ludgate Hill, Birmingham, England

in the year 1899. The H.B is the maker's mark of Henry Bourne, the lion is the sterling silver assay mark, the lower case z in that shape is the date code for 1899 and the sideways anchor is the city mark for Birmingham. The creamer has a current value of 75GBP.
