Vintage hammered metal bowl (brass? copper?) with a tiny S stamp on the base. Any ideas where it’s from?

Need to establish the metal first. Brass would be fairly hard and ring when tapped.
Copper would sound dull, and would squash easily.
otherwise clean a little area underneath with steel wool.

I always get confused between brass, bronze and copper. I think it’s copper because of the green verdigris inside and patches on the outside. And small scratches on the collar round the rim look copper coloured

The S is the same font as the KSIA stamp for the Keswick School of Industrial Arts
