Hi, @Jelena

Unfortunately, your item is not silver, it is only silver plated.  The makers can be Wilkinson & Shaw or Weir & Sons. More informations can be found on this site: http://www.silvercollection.it/silverplatehallmarks.html , one of the most complete on internet.

"British electroplaters used a letter code for their "Plated" wares. The best quality was "A1" or "AI", lower level was "A", next level was "B", followed by level "C", and the lowest level was "D".
A1 (or AI)= Superior Quality = 32 grams on 12 pieces = 2 2/3 grams per table spoon or table fork
A = Standard Quality = 24 grams on 12 pieces = 2 grams per table spoon or table fork
B1 = Quality code found in a Walker & Hall spoon = meaning unknown
B = Third Quality = 16 grams on 12 pieces = 1 1/3 grams per table spoon or table fork
C = Fourth Quality = 12 grams on 12 pieces = 1 grams per table spoon or table fork
D = Fifth Quality = 6 grams on 12 pieces = 0 1/2 grams per table spoon or table fork".
