Hi Flatkaka,

Welcome to the forum,
British silver dish; the lion passant walking to the left, and the Leopard head for London with the date letter Q for 1891. Maker's mark too far gone to find a match.

Best,

Oel.

Thank you so much Oel, I can see that the second letter is H, but the first one is tricky.

I just realized that the bowl is engraved!

Thank you again

Assuming you're reading the mark upside down, 'Henry Wilkinson & Co ' may be a possibility for the maker (a better image would help).
