Old bronze(?) tray with lion passant silver marks?

    Hi. I've had this tray for decades. I just noticed the marks on the underside a few weeks ago.
    Its very difficult to research as mention of the marks always leads to silver items.
    The marks are a crown, a lion passant guardant, a lower case 'a', and an upper case 'B' on a shield shaped stamp.
    Hopefully I will manage to add images.

    Any information at all would be appreciated. Cheers/

    As the others said, we will need to see more photos.
    I wonder if it used to be plated. Some silverplate makers used marks that resemble British silvermarks. Maybe @Bakersgma recognizes them.:)
