The first hallmark has a Britannia silver mark. That's 23‚ĀĄ24th silver by weight.
That should be a help to get you started. 
Silversmiths were melting down silver coinage for their pieces so they forced them to use a higher purity - Britannia silver so as to curtail coinage disappearing. Britannia silver was compulsory between  1687 and 1720. So you have an old piece of silver there.

Britannia, standard mark for silver fineness of 95,84 % (compulsory between 1687 and 1720)

That's the London mark

My hunch is this is a 1713 year mark.

This is a drinking mug with a date given as 1713 - it is the same year mark as yours.

The maker's mark - haven't found what that is - i noticed that the maker's marks were different then.

London 1700 - William Scarlett

This is given as London 1700 - William Scarlett

Notice that the maker's mark is SC - the first two letters of the surname rather than the maker's initials. 

So your piece would have been made by a London maker around in 1713 with the surname starting ME - it looks like ME on your piece.

Love to see the whole piece to see what it is. You seem to have a real find there.

Thankyou very much @sixgun that is a huge help this piece is a large salver 6.2kg

im still sat on the fence whether or not to do this deal as normally I do coins,

just finding it so difficult to trace the maker im told he was a good one, looking at all the dates and 

makers has absolutely overwhelmed me in which I have found very interesting.

Again @sixgun very much appreciated for your advice.

kind Regards

6.2kg - OMG - This is an historic piece of silver and massive. With some extra work the maker's name could be found.

A virtually pure silver salver, what a prize that would be.

@jultorsk has found the guy - as i mentioned earlier they tended to use the first two letters of the surname. 

From a bit of a scout around, this chap is top drawer - he clearly made some massive pieces which only the very wealthy would be able to afford, so naturally he made silver for the elite.

Here is a sideboard dish - 7.2kg -  Price realised - £34,850. i notice the date is 2012 - so the silver price was higher at the time but nevertheless as i said the salver you are looking at is an historic piece - a real prize.

i take it the seller doesn't know the true identity of the piece or you wouldn't be asking about the hallmarks on the forum.¬†ūüėČ
