Question
Pieces appear to be parts of tea set.i was told they came from navy ship

Answer
Hello.

I'm not sure what your question is so I'll just talk about general things related to these pieces.

Several silver companies have made pieces over the years for various naval operations and ships. All I've seen have been made of silver plate. Some are marked with the words, "Silver Soldered", but that just describes how the points of wear were reinforced on a silver plate piece.

Pieces like this generally do not have great value. They have more value when they are collectibles related to a specific ship or operation. I'm not in that market so I do not know which, if any, ships and operations fall into this category.

Naval museums might be a good place to seek additional information.

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,

Jim
