Three marks - the J.S, & S stands for for John Sherwood and Sons. This version of the mark was used between 1865 and 1913 and the mark next to it represents a beaver which was also used as a trade mark by this company.
The third plate mark, a crown in a cartouche. was designed to look very similar to a Sheffield Assay mark that was normally appears on Stirling silver items. This was an extremely common marketing ploy of the time.
Use of the crown mark on plate items was made illegal in 1896 therefore the coffee pot predates this time.
