the bottom says monarch brand plate # 269
Answered your own question-plate is plated and magnets only adhere to iron based metals.
oh i see i didnt know that
925 and of course sterling marks are definitive. Sterling is warm & oily feeling, plate is cold and squeaky clean feeling.

They're silverplated butter coolers. The butter picks are missing from their holders.
