Your tea urn was made by William Hutton & Sons about 1880=1889. The S under the initials stands for their Sheffield factory. They had a factory in London as well.The EPBM stands for ElectroPlated Britannia Metal. This means your urn originally was silver plated over a base metal mostly made of pewter called Britannia metal.The original thin layer of silver plating has worn off your piece. The base metal is left.Since it now is mostly pewter, it still has some value to collectors.The retail antiques store value of your urn would be $200-225 assuming good condition with no leaks.A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.I hope I have helped you.If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.If you would like to work with me on future questions, I would be pleased to work with you.All you have to do is put my name (Doris) at the beginning of your question.Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort. This is of no cost to you.Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system.Kind regards.Doris
