Earlier today I visited a good friend who has quite a collection of silver. Amongst the items I could not identify was a silver plated "sugar scuttle". I'm posting a picture of the hallmark and of the item. It is a very nice piece and I half hoped it might be Sheffield plate - something about which I know nothing. Any help would be appreciated.

Although the marks didn't show up well, the style of the object indicates that it's likely to be later than the main period of Sheffield plate, so more likely electroplated and possibly on a Britannia metal base.

These scuttles have been an established part of the gift giving industry for nearly a century. The marks found are numerous, and usually obscure. As far as I know, they have been made everywhere and by everybody. What leads me to conclude that the design is owned by a wholesaler who puts production out for bid.
