Thanks again guy,

Appreciate your kind words.

As to construction; it's very thin/light and non magnet but is most certainly silver plated.

Thanks Chaps,

Sometimes things just work out, so chuffed with this one.

The maker is 'Williams' (marked twice) just visible one the back. A very early maker pre 1800.
