Above is a silver plated demitasse spoon with W&G identified as the maker/retailer with an EP mark for electro plate. The only W&G I know is Woodward and Grosjean. I believe these spoons are from a time after this company was in business and I am not aware of any silver plated items that they made.

Any ideas as to who W&G were?

I am pretty sure the mark is that of the Sheffield firm of Watson & Gillott.

Thanks Doc. I did not think it was English as most of their silver plate has s more impressive mark than a simply EP. I believe you are right.
