That was a very specific Arts & Crafts line, featuring mixed metal Viking-themed motifs, like longships and dragons, and every piece I've seen bore Benedict's 'bee' trademark along with a serifed letter 'Viking Silver' logo.
It's a nice piece, if guessing, would say circa 1890s, though it could be a bit later (personally, prefer to leave monograms, but to each their own)...
