This beautiful gravy ladle is marked SG England EPNS A1. I have not been able to identify SG or the pattern. EPNS stands for electroplated on nickel silver, a common name used for silverplate. This type of silverplate has a thin layer of silver electroplated on nickel silver, which is an alloy of nickel, copper and zinc.The ladle has a curved handle and a simple but pleasing design. It is in excellent gently used condition. The ladle measures about 7" long and about 2.5" across the bowl.
