Silver and Flatware/silver ladle


Hull royal infirmary silver ladel marks on front are hospital name. On back are stamped letters..e p n a
Is it worth anything please


The "epna" means the piece is made of silver plate. Since very little silver is involved, the piece has little value base solely on silver content. However, it could have some value to collectors of items from this hospital. Unfortunately, I do not know if such collectors exist.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
