Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. I can tell without seeing it that it was made by E.G.Webster and Son of Brooklyn, New York between the years of 1886 to 1928. The 72 is the pattern number of this set. If you do not see the word sterling near these other marks, then the set is silver plate with no exceptions. This company made mostly silver plated items and this set would have a value of $75.00 as a silver plated tea set.

It is important for you to click the stars after you read my answer.
