I inherited a teapot with a wooden handle and a creamer and sugar bowl. They have the number 00978 on them, the letters M B C E P, the symbols cresent moon with star, scale and something else, and the symbols of a crown, cross hatching (kind of like tic-tac-toe) and a star. Does anybody have any idea what I have? Is it even silver?

Thank you,

Hi there,

I would guess it is plated. I am almost sure I have seen the mark before.
