Bros. in the second box and a letter S in the third box. E.P.B.M. printed below. The 1655. Then Made in Sheffield England and then a small box below, can't identify the mark within.
Any help identifying this piece? It is a small pitcher with a lid, that folds back. It is about 7 and a quarter inches in height.
Hello, again!This is a silver plated syrup pitcher from Cooper Brothers and Sons (later Frank Cobb and Co) of Sheffield, England. This mark was used from 1865 to 1964. It would be hard to exactly date this piece if I can't see it. This piece is EBPM which means Electro Plated Britannia Metal, more commonly called silver plate in North America. This piece has a value of 15.46 us dollars or 20CAD.Please do click the stars to rate and to close this question.
