Answer
Hello.

I've researched this company for other questioners and have been unsuccessful in finding much information. As you pointed out, the silver portion of your piece is made of silver plate. Because of the "EPNS" mark,  I'm assuming the piece was made in the late nineteenth century or early twentieth century. It could have been later than that but probably not earlier since electroplating was developed in the mid-nineteenth century.

You can find a few pieces from this company that have sold on eBay. You might search for some of those and compare them to your piece.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
