Chinese, ca 1900.

The numerals 85 are a silver purity mark.

The maker's chop mark is Shang, this mark has been discussed previously in this post:

The third mark is not clear enough for me to read. Better photographs might produce better results. Or someone else who is familiar with the mark may recognize it.
