It might be worth writing to the Silver Society of Australia with your query - they are quite helpful and have a number of authors published on Australian silver among their members

EPBM usually stands for Electro Plated Britannia Metal (refer Glossary) i.e. your piece is plate, not sterling. Not sure about the manufacturer.

A very faint possibility might be Acme SIlver Plate Co (Boston Ma), however my version of Rainwater does not show a mark.

I agree with Bahner. The engraving would appear to be designed to capitalise on the purported "providence" of a piece related to the German flying ace Max Immelman.

Both HH and HBH were marks used by Harrison Brothers & Howson. I quote "Originally known as Harrison Brothers (from 1849) this Sheffield manufacturer took on Howson as a partner in 1862. The majority of flatware produced by them was EPNS, however some silver items can be found. They also pr...

Very hard to be at all precise without a photo, but perhaps the English maker William Hutton & Sons?

Hi there

Odd markings - have not seem anything like them before. Also, I am Aussie, living in Sydney. For an appraisal (esp Jewellery) try ringing a few local Antique stores - even if they cannot do it, they should be able to point you in the right direction

Hi there You pieces dates to 1918 I think. I collect English silver, but to be honest I don't know what that mark could mean - there was nothing about 1918 that warranted another Assay Office mark.
