Hi, After my research your James Dixon & Sons EP stands for Extra Plate or Electro Plate silver plated cake stand/basket and dates to the late 1880's - 1900 and has a value in today's market at auction with similar examples in good condition £175.00 + to excellent condition £275.00 + depending on the collector or consumer. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike
