Silver bud Vase, E.P.Brass

+

I have a small silver bud vase, about 6 inches high, base is about 2 inches by 2 inches, the holder itself is tapered; on the bottom it has H.S, then under that E.P.Brass; could you tell me, is it silver coated brass? Where could I find more information?

Thank you,

I too have similar markings on a set of what look like candy dishes in the form of a leaf, about 11" X 6-1/2" and about an inch-and-a-half deep. The marking underside is "EP Brass Germany", in uppercase letters. Is this silver plated brass? Any information will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I am Sharon and I would like to know if anyone has come across this type or stamp before? I am inquisitive in nature and things that I come across that I don't understand just bugs the hell out of me until I find the answer. I am not in the industry so please humour me.
I have a silver vase 4" in height (or what appears to be silver), it has a fluted top and has markings under the base EP (not a problem, EPNS not a problem) but then smaller in a square EPDR and a number up the stem of the vase Ro591369 can anyone shed some light about - EPNR and Ro 591369 number Please?

Hi there, you can always go on Judith Millers' antique blog. You will find there a useful A to Z dictionary that has a lot on entries about silver and brass. Also, if you don't mind paying to register you could try Kovel's website that offers an extensive mark guide for silver and other metals. Good luck!
