Is my flatware sterling, silver-plate, or something in-between?

I have inherited a flatware set with 18 10-piece place settings plus serving pieces, all marked "WMF Patent 90." It looks like silver, but I'm wondering if it is actually silver plate, or whether "Patent 90" is an alloy designation of some kind.
